Chilcotin Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Chilcotin language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Chilcotin tribe and their society. Please note that the Chilcotin and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Chilcotin history is interesting and important, but the Chilcotin Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Chilcotin link to add.
