Traditional Languages of the Coast Salish People
New Exhibit Opening Saturday, October 28th, 2023
Prior to colonization, the area now known as Washington State had multiple language groups uniquely spoken by various separate tribes and bands. This exhibit will explore six of those language groups that surround the Salish Sea: Klallam, Twana, Nooksack, Northern Straits, Northern Lushootseed, and Southern Lushootseed.
Through narration and interactive displays, you will learn the history of traditional local languages as well as the complex story of the revitalization tribal nations are undergoing to this day.
