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.

The fishery is managed according to species, gear type, and regions. The primary commercial shrimp species targeted by the Jamestown tribe are spot shrimp. The shrimp fishery is managed to protect smaller males (which later become females) and ovigerous (egg-bearing) females. The shrimp pot fishery is conducted using shrimp pots with rot cord for conservation measures. Shrimp gear (7/8 inch mesh) allows for the escapement of small males.The pot fishery season is opened from April 15 through September 15 of each year but may be adjusted if test fisheries for ovigerous females are conducted.
The spot shrimp fishery is opened when 97% of the females sampled have released their eggs. State and Tribal allocations are based on an equal sharing of the estimated harvestable surplus. The harvestable surplus of spot shrimp is based on an average of the historical harvest with adjustments based on recent fishery performance. There are separate allocation for spots and non-spot shrimp. The actual shrimp population varies from year to year and region to region.
