Exploration of S’Klallam history on tap in Zoom presentation

David Brownell will use ethnographic and research materials to “reconstruct” the landscape and understand how Jamestown S’Klallam ancestors thrived for millennia on its bountiful resources in an online presentation set for 4-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, on Zoom.

Brownell, executive director of the North Olympic History Center, presents “Ethnography and Ethnobotany of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley,” an event hosted by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Library in collaboration with the North Olympic History Center.

Originally dotted with at least 10 prairies and extensive wetlands, the landscape of the Sequim-Dungeness valley has been heavily modified for the past century. Brownell’s presentation looks into the S’Klallam people’s deep and ancient connection with the plants and animals of the Olympic Peninsula.
