Historic Preservation and Language recently released a series of online educational resources.

We envision these resources being used within the Tribe for staff trainings or shared with your respective partners.

Also a reminder that both departments have our own Facebook pages that regularly post photos, videos, and historic information.

We would love to hear feedback about how the resources are being used and what other resources would be most useful for tribal staff and members.

Please email your comments to or call 253-573-7965.
