Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Library: Programs & Events ~ ʔaʔstúʔŋət

Programs & Events

The Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Library offers a variety of programs and events--some for Tribal citizens only, but often for the broader community as well. If an event doesn't specifically say it's for Tribal citizens only, then everyone is welcome.

Jamestown Reads Book Club is Back!

First of all, thank you to those who completed our survey. The results were split, but Tuesday evenings in a restaurant was the clear choice followed by meeting at noon, and some interest in meeting online. So we’re going to test the waters a bit:

  • We will resume our Tuesday evening meetings September 12th at 5:30pm at Galare Thai, 120 W. Bell St. (https://www.galarethaisequim.com/). Depending on the group’s feedback, we will rotate our restaurant choices.

  • For those who are unable to make the evening meeting (or want to continue the discussion), we will also meet the following day, Wednesday, September 13th at noon in the Tribal Library.

  • We will also have a private online discussion group through Facebook. If you are interested in joining that, please contact us at 360-582-5783 or library@jamestowntribe.org.

 The book for September is Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie. We have copies in the library available for checkout.

100 Years: One Woman's Fight for Justice

Please join us for an award-winning film with special guest speaker Tara Martin Lopez, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology at Peninsula College.

Over 100 years ago, the U.S. Government broke up Indian Reservations and allotted millions of acres of land to 300,000 Native Americans. The government promised to manage their land, establishing the Indian Trust Fund to disburse revenues generated by mining, oil, gas, and timber leases.  

The federal government was supposed to manage the Indian Trust...what it really managed was to cheat Indian families out of billions of dollars. In 1996, the Indian Trust became the subject of the largest class action suit ever filed against the Federal Government.

Book: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury 

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, fireman start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce until he meets an eccentric young neighbor who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas of books instead of the mindless chatter of television.
