Review: Indians of the Pacific Northwest

Indians of the Pacific Northwest (First Americans Series)Indians of the Pacific Northwest by Karen Liptak
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a children’s book, essentially, which I picked up from the library looking for an easy introduction to Native cultures of the Pacific NW, preferably one with lots of pictures and easy reading. And that’s exactly what this was: plenty of old pictures of Tlingit, Kwakiutl, Nootka, with short, pithy discussions of their traditional foods, dress, social structures, art forms, religions, and economic activities. Nothing especially in-depth, but enough to orient me for the more scholarly works that are further down my reading list.

  1. Have you talked with my sister about any resources about local tribes? She’s done some reading on some of the local tribes, I think.
