Congratulations and thank you for your dedication to Nooksack Tribal Member, Antonio Swanaset who is now officially a Marine!

He is a Nooksack Tribal Member. Grandson of George & Charlene Swanaset. Son of George Jr & Lolita Swanaset.

Antonio has always been a helpful young man throughout the community. Always trying to do so where ever, and whenever he can. Was always eager to cook fish for the community gatherings.

After graduating from Nooksack Valley High School, he worked for the Nooksack Housing Department for a short while.

He then spent his spare time working with his grandfather George Swanaset, building canoes, and assisting with what ever else he could.
