About Education

The Tulalip Tribes Hibulb Cultural Center and Natural History Preserve is a place that acknowledges and honors the ancestors of the Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skykomish and other tribes and bands signatory to the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott. It is a place where visitors – young and old – can come together and ‘experience’ the lifeways and historic connection to the land of the peoples who lived here for hundreds of years.

We welcome and encourage school groups to tour our permanent gallery that shares the history of our ancestors through the voices of our people; our temporary gallery called ‘Warriors: We Remember’ that reflects on the valor of our Veterans; as well as our longhouse and other displays we offer on art, language, and ancestral values. We have classroom facilities and schedules for tours and craft demonstrations.

The goals of the education team are to keep the memories, language, and teachings of our ancestors alive; to share the history of the people and our historic relationship to the land; and to offer the site as a canvas full of opportunities, an ever evolving living environment.

Culture Series
