Tulalip Tribes still oppose state park development

The Tulalip Tribes of Washington continue efforts to oppose a state park at Cama Beach.

The state began work at the beach until burial grounds were discovered. The tribe says the site is part of a 2,000-year-old Tulalip village.

The tribe has faced other claims on the site. The Samish Nation, the Swinomish Tribe and the Upper Skagit Tribe all say its part of their history.

The Tulalip Tribes recently nominated the site for placement on the National Register of Historic Places in hopes of stopping work by the state.
