Where is Agate Point?

Agate Point is the name of the northern tip of Bainbridge Island, Washington and is where Agate Point Consulting LLC calls home.

portrait of Alfred Thomas AgateThe passage was named for Alfred Thomas Agate in 1841. He was the designated portrait and botanical artist on the United States Exploring Expedition of 1838-1843. His detailed illustrations of indigenous peoples still provide insights into the cultures of pacific islanders and first nations of the US pacific coast.

As stated by the Suquamish Tribe:

“This land is within the ancestral territory of the suq̀ʷabš “People

of Clear Salt Water” (Suquamish People). Expert fisherman, canoe

builders and basket weavers, the suq̀ʷabš live in harmony with the

lands and waterways along Washington’s Central Salish Sea as they

have for thousands of years. Here, the suq̀ʷabš live and protect the

land and waters of their ancestors for future generations as

promised by the Point Elliot Treaty of 1855.”
