Most schools require students to take a foreign language. But what about a native language?

An elementary school in Tulalip is teaching kids the words of their ancestors before they disappear forever.

To learn more about the Tulalip Tribes, log on to http://www.tulaliptribes-nsn.gov/home.aspx.

To try out their language, Lushootseed, go to http://www.tulaliptribes-nsn.gov/Home/Lushootseed.aspx.
