"The stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound were an important part of the oral tradition by which beliefs, values, and customs were handed from one generation to another.

Opinion

From Library Staff

This collection of traditional Indigenous stories from the Puget Sound region was translated from Lushootseed by Vi (Taqʷšəblu) Hilbert, an elder and renowned storyteller from the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe.

Translated and edited by Upper Skagit elder Vi Hilbert, this new edition of 33 stories from the Lushootseed-speaking peoples of Puget Sound features a beautiful redesign and a new foreword by Jill La Pointe, Hilbert's granddaughter.
