More on Tulalip TV

Tulalips air TV shows onlineFrom Tulalip's Heritage High School basketball games to lessons in Lushootseed, the traditional Coast Salish language, KANU-TV offers a look at life on the Tulalip Indian Reservation that is totally free, and available to anyone.

"We have 1,384 (tribal) members that live off the reservation," Tulalip General Manager Shelly Lacy said. "They live all over, and we've had comments that people like being able to be in touch with us, and see what's going on in Indian Country."

The tribes' communications department began airing its own cable channel in 2000. There are at least two other cable channels dedicated to American Indian news, but KANU-TV is the first to offer Web streaming, said Lita Sheldon, manager of the tribes' communications department.
