November busy for school tours at Hibulb Cultural Center (slide show)

MARYSVILLE – To celebrate Native American History Month, many schools are taking field trips to the Hibulb Cultural Center.

Museum manager Mytl Hernandez said Friday said usually students come in the spring, but field trips are way up this November.

The most-popular exhibit at the museum for them is the hands-on temporary one that goes through the entire wool process used to prepare it for weaving. Kids especially like the puppet theater that features a mountain goat and Salish woolley dog.

A fourth-grade class from Martha Lake was on a tour that day. They asked questions of guide Cary Michael Williams for about a half-hour in the museum longhouse.

Williams explained that a real longhouse is three times the size of the one at the museum. He said many entire families would live in them, including grandparents, aunts and uncles.

“Imagine at a family reunion you all living together,” he said.

Williams said it had to be that way because, “Everybody lived and worked together.”

Hernandez said even though the museum has been there for seven years, people who live in Snohomish County often don’t know about it.

“When did you open?” they ask her, she said.
