Quileute Legend – Books

Click the Image Link for more information.

The Native tribes of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula share complex histories of trade, religion, warfare, and kinship. Yet few books have depicted the indigenous people of this region from a Native perspective.

“Native Peoples of the Olympic Peninsula” introduces readers to nine tribes: the Elwha Klallam, Jamestown S’Klallam, Port Gamble S’Klallam, Skokomish, Squaxin Island, Quinault, Hoh, Quileute, and Makah. Written by members of the Olympic Peninsula Intertribal Cultural Advisory Committee and enhanced by photographs and maps, the book is divided into sections focusing on each of the tribes. Each section relates the tribe’s history, its current cultural and political issues, and its tribal heritage programs. Each section also includes information about places to visit and offers suggestions for further reading.

This collection of more than one hundred tribal tales, culled from the oral tradition of the Indians of Washington and Oregon, presents the Indians’ own stories, told for generations around their fires, of the mountains, lakes, and rivers, and of the creation of the world and the heavens above. Each group of stories is prefaced by a brief factual account of Indian beliefs and of storytelling customs. Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest is a treasure, still in print after fifty years.

Native Americans continue to hold a special place in the modern imagination. Images of the Native American as “noble savage,” as grunting Hollywood brute, or even as nature lover reinforce what author James Wilson describes as “the principal role of Indians in US culture throughout the twentieth century: helping America imagine its own history.” Wilson hopes to rescue them from this role and place Native Americans within their own context by attempting to view the Indian-European encounter through their eyes. The result is an engaging history of North America and its peoples–and a welcome addition to the already voluminous literature on the subject.

Voices of a Thousand People: The Makah Cultural and Research Center
Voices of a Thousand People is the story of one Native community’s efforts to found their own museum and empower themselves to represent their ancient traditional lifeways, their historic experiences with colonialism, and their contemporary efforts to preserve their heritage for generations to come. This ethnography richly portrays how a community embraced the archaeological discovery of Ozette village in 1970 and founded the Makah Cultural and Research Center (MCRC) in 1979. Oral testimonies, participant observation, and archival research weave a vivid portrait of a cultural center that embodies the self-image of a Native American community in tension with the identity assigned to it by others.

    I have a friend who has one of thease books and i read it . I dont know if any of it is true . If it isnt then i guess i can drop it, but i dont think this sort of thing can be proved not to be true, so im not giving in . If it is true i will find some proof, i probably wont tell anybody but i need to know . I would find a cold one no matter how far i have to look . I dont drop things like this.
