About this title

Synopsis:

A thin strip of land and islands makes up the Pacific Northwest coast of the United States and Canada. This region has long been home to many groups of native peoples who spoke different languages and had distinct cultural practices. The native peoples of the Northwest thrived in this land of rocky beaches and cedar trees.

The Chinook developed a special language for trading with other nations. The Kwakwaka'wakw created masks that could show two different faces. The Bella Coola had a secret society that performed in a four-night winter ceremony.

Many native peoples still live in the Northwest and continue to fish, carve totem poles, and work to preserve their land and cultures. Learn more about the unique history and cultures of the native peoples of the Northwest.
