My 9 year old had so much fun on this trip! He tried snowshoeing for the first time, got to play and dig in the snow too, and met some new friends to play with. The guides were amazing and I felt he was in good hands as soon as I met them. Highly recommend. We will book another hike with Sahale Outdoors for sure!

My family of three really enjoyed our snowshoeing trip. The guides made the trip more enjoyable. We appreciated their information, as well as their enthusiasm for being outdoors with our group. We are looking forward to joining them on a future trip.

    Indigenous Land


    “It [Lushootseed] is from the beginning strength of the people, and it is from what the Creator put down upon this land for people…. The earth speaks. The animals speak. Everything has a voice.”

    Vi Hilbert, Grandmother Video Project

    The traditional homeland of the Nisqually people includes about two million acres of the Nisqually River drainage from Mt. Rainier to Olympia. They have inhabited this land for thousands of years, since, according to their history, their ancestors, the Squalli-absch, came north across the Cascades from the Great Basin. Nisqually life, territory, and culture have been heavily impacted by the European invasion of the Puget Sound area, and they have fought hard to maintain their identity and dignity in the face of displacement, violence, and suppression. Multiple names around the Puget Sound area honor Leschi, a war chief of the Nisqually Tribe during the mid 19th century, who, along with his brother Quiemuth, led the fight for his people’s right to remain on their ancestral homeland. 

    The Nisqually way of life revolves around salmon, and today, they lead the stewardship of fisheries resources in the Nisqually River area. The tribe operates two fish hatcheries on Clear Creek and Kalama Creek. The tribe’s resilience, dedication, and commitment can be seen in their continued efforts to come alongside, guide, and lead these efforts to care for the land.
    Nisqually is a Southern Coast Salish language, and is a dialect of Lushootseed. Stories, songs, and other Nisqually language resources can be found on the tribe’s website,
