State adopts the name “Salish Sea”

The Washington State Board on Geographic Names met on Oct. 30 and gave formal approval to the term “Salish Sea” as an umbrella name for Puget Sound, Hood Canal, Admiralty Inlet,  Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Strait of Georgia.  Its formal adoption by the state helps solidify the Squaxin view that the Tribe occupies the “Headwaters of the Salish Sea.”
