Swinomish people (pronounced swi-NO-mish) are an historically Lushootseed-speaking Native American tribe in western Washington state in the United States. The tribe lives in the southeastern part of Fidalgo Island near the San Juan Islands in Skagit County, Washington. Skagit County is located about 70 miles (110 km) north of Seattle.
Swinomish people are enrolled in the federally recognized Swinomish Indians of the Swinomish Reservation, formerly know as the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, which is headquartered across the channel from La Conner.
