Sauk-Suiattle, or Sah-Ku-Me-Hu, is a Native American tribe in western Washington state in the United States. The tribe originally lived along the banks of the Sauk, Suiattle, Cascade, Stillaguamish, and Skagit Rivers. The Sauk-Suiattle reservation is centered in Darrington, Washington.

The Sauk-Suiattle language (Lushootseed) belongs to the Salishan family of Native American languages and is spoken by several Salishan groups. The tribe moved onto their reservation in 1855 after the signing of the Point Elliott Treaty. Like many Northwest Coast natives, the Duwamish relied heavily on fishing for their survival and their livelihood.
