United at D.C. march by their own tragedy here at home
Three Tulalip mothers whose children were killed or injured in the 2014 Marysville Pilchuck High School shootings marched to protest gun violence Saturday in Washington, D.C. They were among hundreds of thousands of people at the March for Our Lives, along with a group of students from local high schools.
About 20 members of the Tulalip Tribes joined in the march and shared their pain with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, said Deborah Parker, the Marysville School District’s director of equity, diversity and Indian education.
Parker, a former vice chairwoman of the Tulalip Tribes board of directors, said the group included Denise “Nessie” Hatch-Anderson, whose son, Nate Hatch, was the only survivor of the attack in the Marysville Pilchuck cafeteria; Lavina Phillips, the mother of Shaylee Chuckulnaskit; and Lahneen Fryberg, Andrew Fryberg’s mother.
