Lisa works for the Squaxin Island Museum Library and Research Center. She has been with the museum for 9 years and has great passion for her work.
Lisa is a storyteller, and tells the history and knowledge of her people with the public at many different presentations, for instance, at the Olympia Harbor Days Festival held Labor Day weekend. She enjoys distributing the magazine “A Peoples History of the Seven Inlets” and letting the public know they are standing on Squaxins’ Ancestral Land. She shares the story of her three-time Great Grandfather Dick Jackson and how he would paddle his canoe from Squaxin Island to Steh-Chass, to what is known now as downtown Olympia to bring food and water back for his people.
