Lessons For Life
Where do you go to learn something new? For our ancestors teaching took place around the fires in the longhouse. This was a time of passing on family songs, stories, lineage and moral teachings. There are many types of longhouses in our community; for everyday living, for ceremonies and for learning.
“They told me stories which would create in me the desire to become brave, and good, and strong, to become a good speaker, a good leader, they taught me to honor old people and always do all in my power to help them.”
—William Shelton, Tulalip Tribal Leader (1868–1938)
