Vision, Mission, and Values

Our Name

The name "Kitsap" comes from Chief Kitsap, a Suquamish Tribe leader from the 19th century. Chief Kitsap was a war leader known for his courage, wisdom, and integrity, and was highly respected by both his tribe and by the early European settlers in the area. The Suquamish are a Native American people, part of the Coast Salish peoples of the Pacific Northwest.
