Chetzemoka was a S'Klallam chief who lived in the vicinity of Port Townsend, WA from 1808 to 1888. He came to be chief after his brother, S'Hai-ak, drowned soon after the arrival of European-American settlers. Chief Chetzemoka was influential in the establishment of the Port Townsend settlement, befriending the settlers and signing the Treaty of Point No Point in 1855. It is also noted that he was responsible for the massacre of the native Chimacum Indians at what is now know today as Kala Point.
