After seeing the first ferry now under construction for the Port Townsend-Keystone route named for a historical Klallam chief, Chetzemoka, some Whidbey Islanders hope to see the second ferry named after a figure important to Swinomish tribal history: Squi qui. Doing so would be a true honor to the La Conner-based tribe, its culture and history, said Theresa Trebon, records manager and tribal archivist for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community.
