Tulalip Tribes continues to give back to the Northwest
Conservation Northwest / Nov 13, 2017 / Work Updates
By Natalie Doerr, Foundation Relations Manager
On October 28, 2017, I was honored to attend the Raising Hands event hosted by the Tulalip Tribes. Each year, the Tulalips host this special event to celebrate charitable organizations in our region that have received grants from the Tulalip Tribes Charitable Contributions.
The event featured a delicious dinner, a touching performance of traditional songs by Tulalip Tribes students, and videos about the work that local charities are performing. I enjoyed learning more about the Tulalip Tribes’ culture and was so thankful to receive beautiful cedar gifts, such as a woven mat and basket, made by Tulalip tribal members.
Tulalip Tribes has donated over $84 million over the last 24 years to non-profit organizations across our region. Conservation Northwest is honored to have received grants from Tulalip Tribes for North Cascades grizzly bear restoration, Gold Creek habitat restoration, wolf recovery, and more! THANK YOU!
