The Upper Skagit

The Upper Skagit are a Lushootseed Native American tribe living in the state of Washington. In pre-Colonial times, the tribe occupied lands along the Skagit River, from as far downstream as the land currently occupied by Mount Vernon, Washington, and villages going north as far as Newhalem along the Skagit River, as well as lands on the Baker River, and the Sauk River. Culturally, the Upper Skagit share characteristics with the Lower Skagit, the Coast Salish, as well as the Plateau Indians from the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains.
