The Quileute Tribe
The Quileute Tribe is located in La Push, Washington, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The Quileute Tribe has lived and hunted in this area for thousands of years. Although the village of La Push is only about one square mile, the Tribe’s original territory stretched along the shores of the Pacific from the glaciers of Mount Olympus to the rivers of the rain forests. Much has changed since those times, but the Quileute Elders remember “back in the days” when the “old people” dared challenge kwalla, the mighty whale, and recounted the story of how the bayak, or raven, placed the sun in the sky.
Because of the remote location of La Push, the Quileute have built a tourism industry that serves those seeking a relaxing getaway or a rejuvenating adventure. The tribe’s Oceanside Resort along First Beach offers ocean-view accommodations ranging from rustic to luxurious. Those who visit La Push come for whale watching in the spring; surfing, fishing, and hiking in the summer; and stormwatching in the fall and winter.
