SALMON FESTIVAL FLYER. CLICK TO ENLARGE
(SULTAN,WA) -- The history of Sultan - where whites first settled around 1880 but for centuries before that had been settled by Native Americans - is one of logging, some mining and fishing as well trade boats and transportation boats moving up and down the Skykomish River that flows past the community and joins the Sultan River at the end of Main Street.

In fact both the Sultan River and the town of Sultan were named by white prospectors for the chief of a Snohomish sub-tribe that lived on the Skykomish River in the 1870s.

His name was Tsul-tad or Tseul-tud, which was anglicized by the miners of the time into "Sultan" as they could not pronounce Tseul-tud.

To the white settlers he became known as Sultan John or Chief John Sultan. As early as 1870 placer miners worked along the banks of the Sultan River and later new gold discoveries in 1878 brought more prospectors to the area.

Throughout the community's early history both new settlers and Native Americans depended upon the salmon in the Skykomish and Sultan Rivers both for sustenance and for trade purposes. The salmon gave life. The salmon was a marker of home and community.

And now a special "Return of the Salmon Celebration, Remembering Chief T’seul-Ted - Protecting Our Salmon's Watershed," is slated to be held this month on the very soil in Sultan where Chief T’seul-Ted walked and lived during his life.

It is a FREE family event that takes place Sat. Sept. 28 from Noon to 4 pm at Sultan's Osprey Park at 801 First Street (1st & High St.) in Sultan, rain or shine.

See flyer at upper right.

There will be a special Tulalip tribe welcoming ceremony, riverside fish viewing tours, native American story telling, horse drawn covered wagon ride to the HS Salmon Hatchery, children's activities, native American round dance, vendors, a raffle and more.
