Present-day Seattle sits on land once inhabited by the Duwamish tribe whose venerable leader, Chief Sealth, lent his name to the city. Little of the Duwamish’s ephemeral settlements remain, but you can get a candid, if slightly touristy, taste of how they lived at the purpose-built Tillicum Village on Blake Island where Sealth was born in 1786.

Argosy Cruises organize all-inclusive packages to the reconstructed ‘village’ from Seattle’s waterfront. The four-hour trip includes a boat ride, salmon bake, story-telling and dance performances from Coast Salish people.
