Tulalip Indian Language
The Tulalip Indians were a small Salishan tribe of Washington State, one of the subgroups of the
Twana Indian nation
and speakers of a Twana dialect.
Today, the Tulalip Tribes are made up not only of Tulalip people but also people from other
Twana and Puget Sound Salishan bands, who were merged together with the Tulalip
band by the government in the 1800's. The Tulalip dialect of Twana is no longer spoken today,
but the different Tulalip tribes have been working together to preserve the
Lushootseed Salish language as
a shared heritage language.
