Chinookan peoples have lived on the Lower Columbia River for millennia. Today they are one of the most significant Native groups in the Pacific Northwest, although the Chinook Tribe is still unrecognized by the United States government. In Chinookan Peoples of the Lower Columbia PSU Professor Emeritus Kenneth M. Ames, PSU researcher Robert T. Boyd, and Tony A. Johnson provide a deep and wide-ranging picture of the landscape and resources of the Chinookan homeland and the history and culture of people over time, from 10,000 years ago to the present.
