Tulalip Tribes moves to full membership at PSRC

Five tribes are part of the PSRC

Welcome to our newest voting member, the Tulalip Tribes!  

The Tulalip Tribes is the first and only tribe to establish a federally recognized city to diversify its financial interests and promote economic activity. Quil Ceda Village is a model for Native American economic development to sustain tribal community and culture.  

The tribe’s population is over 4,900 and growing, with 2,700 members residing on the 22,000 acre Tulalip Indian Reservation, which is located north of Everett and the Snohomish River and west of Marysville.

The Tulalip Tribes had previously chosen to participate at PSRC as an associate member since January of 1998.

As a full member, the Tulalip Tribes will vote at the General Assembly, which elects new officers and adopts the agency budget as well as long-range plans, such as the upcoming VISION 2050 plan.

The central Puget Sound region is home to nine federally recognized tribes. The Tulalip Tribes joins the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, Puyallup Tribe of Indians and the Suquamish Tribe as full members. The Snoqualmie Tribe also participates as an associate member.

PSRC looks forward to strengthening ties and working more closely with The Tulalip Tribes.
