What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Lushootseed Salish language information, we would like to share our
collection of indexed links about the Sahewamish 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. Sahewamish history is interesting and
important, but the Sahewamish 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.
