Description:

BRAND NEW Softcover - Finding Chief Kamiakin is the story of a prominent chief of the Yakamas; leaders of both the Sahaptin and Salish tribes often sought his counsel. Through personal aptitude as well as family bonds, he emerged as one of the region's most influential chiefs. He cautiously welcomed White newcomers and sought to learn beneficial aspects of their culture. His dignified manner and attire impressed both soldiers and missionaries. In the 1850s, the arrival of unprecedented numbers of White immigrants caused upheaval that would threaten the very existence of the Plateau's native people. On May 29, 1855, the Walla Walla Council commenced with a brief meeting attended by some 5,000 Indians, including Chief Kamiakin. Two weeks later, he reluctantly signed the Yakima Treaty. He also resolved to fight against the destruction of his people and desecrations upon the land. A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: A mid-1800s surge of White immigrants incited a cataclysmic upheaval that jeopardized the very existence of the Plateau's native people. Chief Kamiakin, a prominent Yakama leader, resolved to resist threats to their lands and traditional way of life. This is his story.

From the Publisher: Richard D. Scheuerman, a professor at Seattle Pacific University, and Michael O. Finley, a professional historian and former cultural adviser to the Colville tribes, patiently recorded Native people's oral histories, and blended original written sources and previously collected interviews to construct this dramatic saga of Chief Kamiakin and his family during the missionary era and the wars that followed in the 1850s. They also present a fresh account of his descendents as they struggled to preserve their cultural identity and traditions.
