Description: “Come here Darlene Peters, a S’Klallam tribal elder discuss the culture and traditions of the Native American Coast Salish people. The journey begins in the mid-1800s when American culture actively discouraged Coast Salish traditions and ends with a modern-day social and cultural resurgence. How have the tribes survived as a people? What is life like for them in the 20th century? What are the cultural and social aspects that hold their society together in the age of technology?”
