NPR: Suquamish Tribe passes resolution for same-sex marriage

"Same-sex marriage is now legal for a tiny sliver of Washington state. The seven-member Suquamish tribal council has voted unanimously to allow the unions. At least one of the partners needs to be an enrolled tribal member, but the couple will be eligible for all the tribe's traditional marriage benefits. However, because of the Defense of Marriage Act, the unions are not recognized by the U.S. government."
