Sauk-Suiattle Tribe buys Forest Service cabins

The Sauk-Suiattle Tribe of Washington is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony today for its new housing project.

The tribe bought eight cabins and 5.64 acres from the U.S. Forest Service for $1.5 million. The cabins will be used to address the lack of housing on the reservation.

"It's really going to help our housing base because we only have 17 homes here and we have over 200 members now," Chairwoman Janice Mabee told The Everett Herald.

The cabins are located six miles south of the reservation. They were built in the 1920s and 1930s.
