Tulalip Tribes debate future of ailing longhouse

The Tulalip Tribes of Washington are planning to repair an ailing tribal longhouse that may need to be replaced altogether.

The longhouse is suffering from a number of structural defects and has been temporarily closed. The tribe plans to spend $150,000 to repair the longhouse in time for the First Salmon Ceremony in June.

Chairman Stan Jones Sr. said the tribe should build a newer, bigger longhouse. He said the current building lacks enough space to host tribal ceremonies.
