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.
