Several times a week, Tulalip Reservation resident Roberta Belanich gathers her questionnaires and heads out to the homes of neighbors who haven't returned their Census 2010 forms. Belanich is an Alaska Native, a member of the Haida and Tlingit tribes, but came to the reservation in Marysville through marriage in 1981. She remembers when a nearby hill was all trees. "Now it's all houses," she said. "That's all happened in the last 10 years."
