KUOW-TV reporter Eilis O'Neill writes that the Snoqualmie Tribe of Washington State announced Friday that it has purchased the land surrounding Snoqualmie Falls east of Seattle, a part of its traditional territory.
The tribe made the purchase — which includes the surrounding land and nearby hotel —from the Muckleshoot Tribe for $125 million.
The falls are sacred to the Snoqualmie people, and their traditional burial site is right above the falls.
