This is the second edition of The Jamestown S'Klallam Story, originally published in 2002, and out of print for a decade. It has been digitized to make it available again.The Jamestown S'Klallam Story is not just a story of the past and present - it is a story of the future. Few contemporary histories of Indian tribes exist; this book begins to fill that gap in the literature as the first comprehensive history of the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe, one of more than 20 small tribes in western Washington. Respected throughout time as "the strong people," the S'Klallam at Jamestown are national leaders in implementing and promoting self-governance.Through a blend of historical and contemporary documents, interviews, storytelling, photographs, and illustrations, The Jamestown S'Klallam Story tells of the remarkable success of a small Indian tribe on the Olympic Peninsula. Environmental, economic, family, and political forces are brought together in this volume to chronicle the story of a unique Indian community, a community that persevered throughout time to retain what was theirs: the S'Klallam land, the S'Klallam community, the S'Klallam character.
