Les Parks – Tulalip Tribes

Tribal Leaders

Tribal leaders are here for one purpose: to provide a better future for you as you are growing up.  That is what I believe we serve our people for is to always be thinking of providing a better future for your people.

Importance of Treaties

The treaties being drafted are the savior to our Indian future.  Those treaties are worth gold to us.

Continuing Our Culture

We have multiple ways of that we try to remember who we are and recognize our past.  One of those ways is our annual festival on the beach where we go down and honor our past elders, and some of us who grew up living on the beach fishing for a living.  We go down there every year, our tribe sponsors that, and we bring our youth down there and show them what it was like to live forty or fifty years ago with just a salmon as your means of survival.
