The Quileute Nation's website alludes only indirectly to the Twilight phenomenon. No doubt this is for the best, since the tribe has existed for ages before Twilight and will exist for ages after it.

But the tribe was missing a bet by not providing anything for fans searching for "Twilight" and "Quileute." Now it's rectified that with a few dedicated websites.

The main one,, offers the following sections:

  • Our Story:  A window summarizing the tribe's genuine history and culture.

  • "Authentic Quileute" Store

  • Quileute Nation fan blog

  • Visit Our Photo Gallery:  Photos of the Twilight actors visiting the reservation and posing with tribal members.

  • Latest News at Quileute Nation:  Links to stories about Twilight and the Quileute Nation.

  • Comment:  No doubt thanks to publicist Jackie Jacobs, the Quileute Nation is getting more media-savvy all the time. This site is a good way to benefit from the fans' interest without tainting the tribe's official website.

    You still can find all sorts of fan sites:,,,, etc. Eventually these sites will fall by the wayside as the fans grow up and get a life. And the tribe's site will remain.
