COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Puyallup Tribal yard sign project

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

The Signs:

Artist Paige Pettibon's design includes our txʷəlšucid virtues: ƛ̓ububƛ̓ub, kʷaxʷalikʷ, ʔabalikʷ. Which means ‘be kind’, ‘be helpful’, ‘be sharing’.
