The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s online museum announced last week a new exhibit called “Treaty Rights and Resources.” The exhibit describes the basis for treaties, and the exercise and protection of treaty rights with respect to hunting, gathering, fishing, shellfish and resource management. The exhibit includes text, photos, documents, curriculum and audio for a content-rich experience.
Visitors also can view previous exhibits including “Jamestown Tribal Council, Past and Present”; “Celebrating Our Coast Salish Canoe Culture”; “Sharing Our Memories, A Collection of Stories and Memories from the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Elders” and “Thirty Years and Time Immemorial: Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Official Federal Recognition of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, 1981-2011.”
In addition to exhibits, the House of Seven Generations offers searchable collections of photos contributed by tribal families and those collected by the tribe; documents related to the tribe and its quest in the 1970s for federal recognition; a media collection that includes oral histories from tribal elders; and images of artifacts — some found in archaeological digs and others contributed to the tribe over the years.
