The Wolf Children
The sons from top:
The Sea Mammal Hunter, The Hunter in the Forest, The Fisher of Halibut and Salmon, The Woodworker and Canoe Builder, and the daughter, The Root and Berry Gatherer, Clam Digger and Basket Weaver.
These children represent the skills needed to be successful in the S'Klallam culture. Carved above their mother, the legend of the Wolf Children explains the origin of the village on Sequim Bay.

Clams & Oysters


Intertidal clams and oysters on state owned tidelands are managed through eight management regions. In each region, a management plan between the State and Tribes is used to coordinate harvests, surveys, and other activities.
Jamestown tribal members harvest clams and oysters for commercial, ceremonial and subsistence purposes. Subsistence clam harvest is monitored through a permit system with an associated catch-reporting requirement. Harvesters are required by regulation to have a valid subsistence harvest reporting card in their possession during each subsistence harvest and to record subsistence catch by species on the card prior to leaving the beach.
Commercial fisheries generally occur with an onsite monitor to observe the fishery and record catch as it is removed from the beach. Jamestown, Port Gamble and PNPTC staff conduct population assessments on selected beaches to determine the total allowable catch for each species and beach.
