About this title


Over the centuries the Indians of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and western Montana have adapted their lifeways to their region’s radically different environments-an evolution that in some tribes continues to this day, as they conform to the demands of contemporary American society.

From Library Journal:

In this excursion into historical facts and figures about more than 150 native groups in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, the authors give a nutshell history of each group through the eyes of missionaries, explorers, and government officials. A companion volume to their Indians of the Pacific Northwest ( LJ 9/15/81), this is primarily useful for informaton on lesser-known tribes, 20th-century land-claim settlements, and the activities of today's tribal organizations. The information included goes beyond Frederick Hodge's classic Handbook of American Indians North of Mexico (1910; 1975. reprint) and John Swanton's The Indian Tribes of North America ( 1952; 1968. reprint). Recommended for public libraries in the Pacific Northwest. Mary B. Davis, Museum of the American Indian Lib., Bronx, New York
