Welcome to Samish Island!

“No Island Like Samish Island”

The Samish Island Community Center’s (SICC) mission is to encourage community development and interaction through educational and social activities among islanders. To that end, it also maintains the community center property as the primary place to gather.

We acknowledge that Samish Island is within the aboriginal territory of the Samish Indian Nation. They were and are respected for their spiritual, cultural, and traditional values and practices, such as weaving, carving, and building of longhouses. The Samish People lived here in stewardship of the lands and waterways of the Salish Sea since time immemorial.   https://www.samishtribe.nsn.us/
