The Squaxin Island Tribe Legal Department is providing this information as a public service. These regulations and related materials are maintained on this Web site to enhance public access to information on Tribal Laws. This is a service that is continually under development. The user should be aware that, while we try to keep the information timely and accurate, there will often be a delay between official publication of the materials and their appearance or modification of these pages.
