The Oregon Historical Society is honored to host the book launch for the latest University of Washington press book, Chinookan Peoples of the Lower Columbia.
This new work brings together perspectives from archaeologists,
ethnobiologists, scientists, historians, and members of the Chinook
tribe to provide a comprehensive and interdisciplinary analysis of
Chinookan peoples and their homeland. The book spans the course of
Chinookan pre-contact history but also addresses more contemporary
concerns, including their ongoing struggle for Federal recognition. The
volume is edited by Robert T. Boyd, a research anthropologist at
Portland State University; Kenneth M. Ames, professor emeritus of
anthropology at Portland State University; and Tony A. Johnson, Cultural
Committee chair for the Chinook Tribe and Education Program manager for
the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe. Books will be available for sale and
signing by the authors. Refreshments provided by WillametteCRA.
