What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Whulshootseed language information, we would like to share our
collection of indexed links about the Nisqually people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis
of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Nisqually history is interesting and
important, but the Nisquallys are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern authors as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary artwork as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
