Sammamish Neighborhoods, Tlingit on Thompson Hill

Located off Thompson Hill Road in Sammamish, Tlingit is a Native North American Term meaning "Human Beings."  Although theTlingit Neighborhood Tlingit people didn't inhabit this area, they were further north in British Columbia and Alaska, the term appealed to the developer of this Sammamish Neighborhood perched on Thompson Hill overlooking Lake Sammamish.

Many homeowners in Tlingit enjoy excellent western views.  These higher end homes have been recently priced from the middle $600,000's to well over $1,000,000.  Built primarily from the late 1980's through the 1990's they are positioned to maximize and enjoy Lake Sammamish vistas.

The Sammamish Neighborhoods are so very attractive. 

Tlingit sitting on Thompson Hill is especially so. 

If I were moving to your area, Dan, I would definitley want to see homes available in this area.

Do the Tlingit American Indians live in this housing development or did that land originally belong to the Tlingit people?  Where to the Tlingit Indians currently live?

Lauren,

My understanding is that the Tlingit people live in the southern British Columbia area on the coast.  Our nearest tribe are the Snoqualmie who live about 30 minutes from here.
