The Hibulb Cultural Center is a place that tells a story and enhances the history, traditional cultural values and spiritual beliefs of the Tulalip Tribes. The tribes are the successors in interest to the Snohomish, Snoqualmie and Skykomish tribes and other tribes and bands signatory to the Treaty of Point Elliott. It is a beautiful Center with stone flooring and wood beams which contains a longhouse, interactive displays, and a place to meet. The feeling here is that of home.
You’ll find your own favorite exhibit. Mine was “The Tree Itself”, showcasing the cedar tree and the many uses of it; as well as the journey of life through the various seasons.
The gift shop houses a nice selection of items for purchase. I would like to see a coffee table type book with the history and photos that is presented here at Hibulb Cultural Center. It is conveniently located off of I-5 in Marysville, WA. Take exit 199, Marine Drive NE in Marysville. Go west approximately 0.5 miles, then turn left on 23rd Avenue NE.
“Thank you for allowing me to take your bark so I can make something beautiful and useful. I will not waste any of the cedar that I have taken and I will share this gift you have given me with other.” ~ Joy Jones Lacey- from Cultural Resources Department, Tulalip Tribes
