Hibulb Village: Heart of the Region This bluff overlooks land formerly called Hibulb Village, the principal winter home of the Snohomish People, for hundreds of years. Hibulb means, "where the water boils out of the ground," referring to the river that served as both highway and bountiful resource. Positioned well at the river's gateway, Hibulb was a hub for trade, leadership and socialization. Archeological evidence shows several hundred people lived here at any one time. From high on the bluff, onlookers could view the campsites of kin strewn along the seashore and riverbanks, giving the region its name, "Land of a Thousand Fires." for more information about Hibulb Village of the Snohomish People, visit Hibulb Cultural Center & Natural History Preserve.
