The Suquamish people have lived along the shores of the Kitsap Peninsula for hundreds of years. Taking their name from the word for “clear salt water,” Suquamish ancestors thrived by harvesting salmon, clams and other natural foods. Their robust culture is rich with art, dance, song, ceremony, contest and ritual.In 1987, the Suquamish Tribe established Port Madison Enterprises as an agency of the Suquamish tribal government. PME’s operations are aimed at developing community resources while promoting the economic and social welfare of the Suquamish Tribe through commercial activities. What began as a modest retail endeavor has grown exponentially over the last quarter century. PME now encompasses several businesses including Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort, the historic Kiana Lodge, three retail outlets, White Horse Golf Course and a property management division. Operations of PME are conducted at the direction of a Board of Directors comprised of seven tribal members who are appointed by the Suquamish Tribal Council. The Board has the power and responsibility to establish employment policies for PME and all of its ventures and subsidiaries. With more than 1000 employees in field ranging from information technology to hospitality to construction, the Suquamish-owned company and its subsidiaries are now the second-largest private employer in the greater Kitsap area.Our Mission - Provide a sustainable diversified economy that ensures financial independence, development and revenue growth for the Suquamish Tribe, while promoting an atmosphere of excellence for our employees, guests and the community.
