Contemporary Tulalip are descended from several older indigenous peoples: the Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skagit, Sauk-Suiattle, Samish, Stillaguamish, Duwamish, Sammamish and Skykomish; all these groups (with the exception of the Samish, who spoke Straits Salish) spoke a Salishan language called Lushootseed ( dxwləšúcid ); the Lushootseed spelling of "Tulalip" is "dxwlilap". Like many Northwest Coast natives, the Tulalip relied on fishing from local rivers and marine waters for food and built plank houses (longhouses) to protect themselves from the harsh, wet winters west of the Cascade Mountains.
