Chelángen Department

Join us for a discussion of “The People of Cascadia” by Heidi Bohan. This book is available in print at the Samish Library in Anacortes. 

Please email RSVP@samishtribe.nsn.us to join the Book Club email list! Book Club members will receive invitations to all discussions and can choose which to attend. 

The People of Cascadia is a highly visual and comprehensive historical glimpse into the daily lifeways of four major cultural language groups of the Pacific Northwest: the Coast Salish, Wakashan, Chinookan and Sahaptin which encompass hundreds of bands and tribes. Cascadia refers to a geographic region which includes the Pacific Northwest and the Columbia Plateau encompassing portions of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia and Alaska.

It was written and illustrated for all ages, and is used in elementary, middle school and college level classes, and by anyone interested in learning more about the people who lived in this region for at least five hundred generations before the first European schooners arrived in the late 1700’s.

This event is co-hosted by Samish Indian Nation's Chelángen Department and Prevention/Intervention Program.
