Suquamish Veterans Memorial
Port Madison Reservation, WA

The Veterans Memorial was designed to honor local native and non-native individuals who have served in the armed forces. The site overlooks the Community House and has views to Mt. Rainier and the waters of Agate Pass. At its heart of the design are four House Posts carved by a local tribal artist Andrea Sigo. These House Posts welcome visitors to view the granite canoes, located on a low wall with names of local service members. The site offers the perfect context for one Suquamish myth “Sea to Sky,” the same quote that was carved in a previous Totem commissioned and located on this site during the 1960 Seattle World’s Fair.
