Today I Join my dad on the NativeTalk.net radio podcast again for a special one hour show discussing some of the history of the Pacific Northwest Tribes. Specifically, on their way of life including why they were considered by other tribes to be wealthy, how they gathered food, living arrangements, and their form of currency and trade.
One of the most important aspects of tribal life in the Puget Sound region, was the potlatch. We talk in about what it meant, how it was prepared, and some of the reasons a potlatch might be held. Finally, we finish with the legend of “How Raven Stole Crow’s Potlatch” which is a fantastic story that you will all enjoy.
