Local Duwamish people parked their canoes in downtown Seattle

"The Duwamish tribe (pronounced [dxʷdɐwʔabʃ] in Lushootseed) is a Native American tribe in western Washington, and the indigenous people of metropolitan Seattle. The Duwamish tribe today includes the People of the Inside, for Elliott Bay environs today; and the People of the Large Lake, for those around Lake Washington of today. By language, the Duwamish are (Skagit-Nisqually) Lushootseed Salish. Adjacent tribes throughout the Puget Sound-Strait of Georgia basin were interconnected and interrelated, yet distinct. The people have been living in what is now metropolitan Seattle since the end of the last glacial period (c. 8,000 B.C.E.—10,000 years ago)." - Wikipedia.com
