Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This publication by the Quinault Indian Nation is an
excellent history of the Quinault Indians from the days of earliest contact with European
explorers and traders up to fishing rights disputes with the state of Washington. The
subtext of the book is land rights as the authors document the claims of British and
American explorers, the Quinault River Treaty of 1855, the Dawes Act of 1887, the invasion
of the lumber companies, and the hard fought struggle to reclaim control of their land and
resources by the Quinault Indians against lumber companies, the State of Washington, and
the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The lumber industry dominated the region's economy.
Clearcutting and a massive network of rivers, dams, rails, and roads transformed the
landscape, rendering it unusable by Quinault fishermen. In the 1960s a new generation of
university-educated Quinault leaders began the fight to change lumbering practices from
slash-and-burn to sustained-yield practices which recognizes a more symbiotic relationship
with the environment.
