Stillaguamish tribe a good neighbor

The volunteers at the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Museum in Arlington received a grant from the Stillaguamish Tribe to help purchase a carved cedar map of the watershed through the Stillaguamish Valley. We want to thank the Tribe for its generosity in contributing dollars for a 7-foot by 12-foot carving.
It will be installed at the Pioneer Museum and visible at all times. We hope to have it show the historical sites such as the location of the original schools, Indian encampment grounds, railroads, river and streams and other important areas.
It will certainly help preserve the history encompassed by the areas cities and towns, past and present. We will use the expertise of the Tribe to give us some of the information, which will be incorporated into this carving.
