Opening March 2014: "Unearthing Tribal History" Exhibit

  "Unearthing Tribal History"  

The exhibit, housed within the permanent Jamestown S'Klallam Longhouse Exhibit and developed in collaboration with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, chronicles past archaeological excavations at Washington Harbor and the State Highway 101 Sequim Bypass.

The displayed artifacts, which include numerous tools, were uncovered during archaeological digs in the late 1990s at the Sequim Bypass site along State Highway 101 and in 1981 from Suxtcikwi’In, a main S’Klallam village located along Washington Harbor at the present-day site of the Battelle Marine Sciences Laboratory. All of the featured artifacts are on loan from the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe.

The MAC Exhibit Center is open 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. Call 360-683-8110 for details.

The Jamestown S'Klallam Longhouse Exhibit features rotating collections of artifacts and artwork of cultural significance, and is a cooperative endeavor between the Museum & Arts Center and the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe.
