"Now what I want to say is this. My home is at Shilacum [Steilacoom] Creek and there is where I want to live and die. I wish to tell the Governor that every Indian loves his native land best. Every Indian loves his own people best."

Sam Young, Chief of the Steilacoom Tribe

At the Fox Island Council, August 4, 1856. 

Today the Steilacoom Tribe is led by a group of volunteers from our Steilacoom Tribal Citizens, the Steilacoom Tribal Council. In November 2023, Steilacoom Tribal Citizen, Rebecca Unzuetta, was voted in as Tribal Chairperson.
