Exhibit to display Native American canoesThe Tulalip Tribesí Hibulb Cultural Center features a new special exhibit, A Journey with our Ancestors: Coast Salish Canoes, which opened on June 28 and will be on display through June 2015. The exhibit highlights the importance of canoes to the Coast Salish people and their way of life before the arrival of caucasian people.
Learn about different types of canoes and how they were carved, Salish canoe travel routes throughout Puget Sound, important canoe carvers, and traditional canoe-based gatherings ranging from canoe races to festivals and journeys. The interactive exhibit features over 70 items, including a large canoe you can sit in and videos of canoe carving. A historical timeline shows the history of canoes from pre-contact with whites to today.
The Hibulb Cultural Center, located in Tulalip, Washington, is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 12 PM to 5 PM. The Center is a place of learning and a source of civic pride for the Tulalip people and our neighboring communities.
