Biographical / Historical

The Klamath Indian Tribe was fishermen, hunters and plant gatherers. The tribe lived along the shores of the Klamath River and Upper Klamath Lake in southern Oregon. They lived off the land, using its various resources. Indigenous plants in the region provided sustenance to the local tribes: food and materials for mats, shelters, baskets and clothes. This book was written together with the Klamath high school students in the effort to make the tribal culture known to the young tribe members.
