Sentinel Rock at Port Townsend, WA
SíKlallam Chief T'chits-a-ma-hun, or Chetzemoka as the Port Townsend settlers pronounced his name, was a
peacemaker and a friend to the early settlers. He has been venerated by many over the years. A new Port Townsend
ferry boat named Chetzemoka made its inaugural run on November 14, 2010. A statue of Chief Chetzemoka (1808 -
1888) was placed on Sentinel Rock at Port Townsend in 1996, as shown above. A local pioneer society, the Native
Daughters of Washington, placed a memorial tablet on Sentinel Rock in 1938, in memory of Chief Chetzemoka. Also,
the first city park in Port Townsend, Chetzemoka Park, was established in 1904.
