A major part of txʷəlšucid language revitalization is visibility in our community. This section provides examples of txʷəlšucid signage, art and other projects that are visible on the Puyallup Reservation and in the city of Tacoma. Learn how to say these phrases and what they mean.

Puyallup Tribal Yard Sign Project

The Puyallup Tribl Language program worked with Native artists to create txʷəlšucid yard signs. These signs were for the Puyallup Tribal community to share the Lushootseed language.

City of Tacoma yard sign Project

The City of Tacoma coordinated the printing and distribution of more txʷəlšucid yard signs for the Tacoma Community. These signs help with visibility of our Native language.

Springtide Press Project

A collaboration with Spring Tide Press helped share the txʷəlšucid virtures and a traditional place name for what is now Tacoma through posters and social media.

Tacoma Transformer Box Designs

Three Puyallup Tribal artists/brothers: Daniel Duenas Jr., Anthony Duenas & Chris Duenas worked with the City of Tacoma to vinyl wrap transformer boxes on the Puyallup Reservation and around the city. They produced 3 designs, all of which come from the story of dukʷibəɫ ‘The Changer/Transformer’, our people’s creation story.
