Pacific Northwest Indians

The Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest

Chinook women gathered plants, herbs and clams and did most of the child care and cooking. Men were fishermen and hunters and sometimes went to war to protect their families. Both genders took part in trade, storytelling, artwork and music, and traditional medicine. The Chinook chief was always a man, but clan leaders could be either men or women.

Tlingit artists are known for their fine basket and carving arts, including totem poles, and for their exceptional Chilkat robes and other weavings.

The Chinook Indians are original people of the Pacific Northwest Coast. They live in Washington state.
