Another tribal council approves same-sex marriage

This week the Suquamish Tribal Council voted to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples. The Suquamish Reservation is on Puget Sound near Seattle Washington.

The tribal law authorizes the tribal court to issue a married license to unmarried persons 18 and over regardless of their gender, and at least one of the persons is an enrolled tribal citizen.

The Coquille Tribe in southwestern Oregon is believed to be the first American Indian tribe to approve gay marriages, which it did in 2008.
