The Tulalip Tribes are working to create their own identification cards Indians could use to cross the Canadian border when the passport requirement takes effect June 1.

A tribal policy analyst, Theresa Sheldon, told The Everett Herald the Tulalips likely won’t make the deadline and may need an extension. She says the tribe needs to create a database that can been accessed 24 hours a day by federal border guards.
