The Skagit (// SKAJ-it) (″People Who Hide″ or ″People Who Run and Hide Upriver [the Skagit River]″) are either of two tribes of the Lushootseed Native American people living in the state of Washington, the Upper Skagit and the Lower Skagit.
They speak Skagit (also called Swinomish), a subdialect of the Northern dialect of Lushootseed, which is part of the Salishan family. As of 1977[update], there were an estimated 100 speakers of Skagit.
