Traditional Art “ James Madison uses materials that his elders in the Coast Salish and Tlingit tribes never dreamed of using. ‘I call it keeping my culture alive,&quot; he said. &quot;For myself, and for all of us, my generation is starting to do this.’” “ Carved by a team of Tulalip artists, the poles both welcome guests and suggest the extent to which the Tulalips‘ vision of a luxury resort with a distinctive tribal identity is poised to take its place in the Tulalip Tribes' growing portfolio of successful business ventures. “
