First Nations in Port Ludlow
The indian name for Port Ludlow Bay was Sna-nul-kuo or Dos-la-latl. If anyone has reliable information on the meanings of those names, please let us know.
Sna-nul-kuo / Dos-la-latl was part of the territory traditionally inhabited by the Chimacum tribe. That is not the original spelling of course.
In the 1800's the first people in the Port Ludlow area were primarily from the S'Kallam tribe. This is known from Pope & Talbot's employment records at the mill.
This page is still a draft. More will be added as research is conducted. There is very little known about the first people in this area, in part because they were warlike and had many disputes among themselves, but mostly because smallpox and measles preceeded the arrival of the white settlers.
