Duwamish Tribe raising funds for cultural center

The Duwamish Tribe of Washington is hoping to raise $79,000 to build a cultural center and longhouse.

The tribe is getting some help from local churches. A fundraiser organized by churches whose founders were welcomed to the area by the tribe more then 100 years ago brought in $4,000 yesterday.

The tribe received a favorable recognition decision in the last days of the Clinton administration. But the Bush administration put the ruling on hold and later rescinded it.
