For the People page this week we’ve included another list of individuals who were significant during this time period. You will also find an excerpt from the author and artist George Catlin that presents his view of U.S. Indian policy, and the text of Four Bears’ speech. Both of these pieces augment the testimonies presented in Tribal Perspectives.
This week on the Research page, we want to introduce
you to the Treaty Trails website of the Washington State History Museum. Take some time to see how the early treaties affected the tribes who inhabited an area you or your students choose to study.
