Featured Books

The Herbal Apothecary

Incorporating traditional wisdom and scientific information, The Herbal Apothecary includes advice on growing and foraging for healing plants and recommendations for plant-based formulations to fight common ailments.(From Jacket)

Pocahontas and the English Boys

The captivating story of four young people--English and Powhatan--who lived their lives between cultures In Pocahontas and the English Boys, the esteemed historian Karen Ordahl Kupperman (an expert in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Atlantic history,) shifts the lens on the well-known narrative of Virginia's founding to reveal the previously untold and utterly compelling story of the youths who, often unwillingly, entered into cross-cultural relationships--and became essential for the colony's survival. Their story gives us unprecedented access to both sides of early Virginia. (From Jacket)

Fort Casey: The History of Fort Casey and the Defense of the Pacific Northwest

Fort Casey was part of the national system of defense that protected our freedom for over 40 years.Today it remains the silent sentinel, facing waters of Admiralty Inlet and her sister forts of the old Harbor Defense. (From Jacket)

The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book

An alternative and unorthodox view of the colonization of the Americas by Europeans is offered in this concise history. Eurocentric studies of the conquest of the Americas present colonization as a civilizing force for good, and the native populations as primitive or worse. The opposing historical camp views colonization as a form of genocide in which the native populations were passive victims overwhelmed by European military power. This account encompasses North and South America, the development of nation-states, and the resurgence of indigenous resistance in the post-World War II era.(https://archive.org/details/GordHill500YearsOfIndigenousResistance)

When a Ghost Talks, Listen

The sequel to Tim Tingles's How I Became a Ghost finishes the story of ten-year-old Issac, and his family as they continue the long walk to Indian Territory. Issac, our narrator and now a ghost, meets the famed Choctaw Chief and U.S.Army General Pushmataha. (From Jacket)

Thank you Washington State Library and IMLS!

Washington State Library    Institute for Museum and Library Services

We just finished a year-long project funded by a Washington Digital Heritage Grant from the Washington State Library and the Institute for Museum and Library Services. The bulk of the grant funds and time went to transcribing 19 oral histories of Tribal Elders and others. You can listen to the stories of your parents and grandparents, friends and neighbors and/or read their words.

Check them out and let us know what you think! You can email comments to library@jamestowntribe.org..  

We recently were awarded the 2019 IMLS Accelerating Promising Practices Grant! With this grant, we will pick up where the Washington Digital Heritage Grant left off. Over the next two years, we will use the oral histories and transcripts along with photos and videos to create 3-5 minute digital stories covering a wide range of topics. We are so excited about this opportunity to further engage people near and far with the stories of Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe!
