I have extensive experience working with individuals and projects on the Tulalip reservation. The company I used to work for made all the concrete block for the Tulalip casino, I delivered a ton of it. We also made the block for the community center, I delivered most of that myself. I also have a ton of residential deliveries on the Tulalip reservation as well. At my current job, we haul all the Christmas trees for the Tulalip “Festival of Trees” every year, about half of those go to various tribal agencies on the Tulalip reservation.
I also have fairly extensive experience with delivering on the Lummi Reservation. I can’t think of any problems I have ever had with anyone on any reservation, ever, and I am literally speaking of at least 1000 deliveries. The people are always nice and respectful, which is far more than I can say for those not on reservations.
I do admire the way the tribes try to take care of their own, I wish the people of this country had the same goal as a whole.
