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)

2019 National Medal Award

Can you believe it!?! Five libraries out of more than 126,000 in the country to win the 2019 National Medal Award and we are one of them! https://www.imls.gov/news-events/news-releases/imls-announces-10-recipients-nations-top-award-museums-and-libraries

From its humble beginnings in 1988 in a corner of the Tribal Community Center, to the annex with Social and Community Services under the tutelage of Liz Mueller, then as part of the Planning Department under the leadership of Leanne Jenkins, and most recently as part of the Tribal Historic Preservation Office under David Brownell, we’ve come a long way!

This is a huge honor, and we couldn’t have gotten here without the help and support of so many people—Tribal citizens and staff, as well as all of you, Tribal and non-tribal who use the Library.We thank you for your support!
