Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This report describes the lives of Twana people as observed during the first few decades following their relocation to Skokomish Reservation, during which they had intensive contacts not just with United States government agents, but also with Christian missionaries and international trading companies. This induced notable changes in traditional culture, especially in regard to food, dwellings, clothes, basic tools, manners, war, hunting, political organization, and religion.
