Dr. Josh Wisniewski, anthropologist for the Jamestown and Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribes, will discuss S'Klallam hunting, and anthropological descriptions of hunting in the context of treaty rights, treaty boundaries and the creation of "official" knowledge and counter narratives. Come learn what archeological,ethnographic and historical evidence can tell us about the occupation and usage of particular areas for hunting, fishing, and gathering, as well as the various trails that connected these sites and the various Tribes of the Peninsula.
