The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal (PGST) Housing Authority designed and built the Teekalet Village at a key location adjacent to historic salmon fishing grounds on the Puget Sound, Washington State. Site features include a community building, a playground, and connections to walking/hiking trails. This housing was built to replace asbestos-contaminated houses on the same site.
This case study forms part of the Case Studies 2013 project by the Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative (SNCC). These case studies are foundational to SNCC's multi-year effort to research and share the exciting work that tribes are undertaking across the country.
