J-40 SUTTLES

I was born in 2004 and am 13 years old. I was named in a traditional Potlatch Naming Ceremony held by the Samish Nation on October 01, 2005. We don’t get named until we are at least one year old.

My Mother, Samish (J-14) died in 2016, when I was 12 years old.

My older sister is Hy’shqa (J-37)  and my brother is Se-Yi’-chn (J-45).

There are only three of us in our little family. We always stay together but we might travel with another family for comfort and companionship. Our J-Pod clan is a tight extended family and we help each other in times of sorrow and loss.
