Summary:
The Chinook lived along the Northwest Pacific Coast and the Columbia River. Expert hunters, fishermen, traders and storytellers, they bargained with arriving Europeans, exchanging pelts for tools and guns. The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804 stayed with the tribe for several months, impressed by their rituals and hospitality. Eventually, the Chinook were devastated by foreign diseases for which they had no immunity, and by 1840 two-thirds of the Chinook population had died. Governmental treaties and doctrines also deprived the tribe of much of its land, leaving surviving generations with an ongoing battle to secure tribal recognition and reclaim the land once held by their ancestors. Part of the multivolume Indians of North America Video Collection, each featuring the compelling history and culture of a particular Native American tribe.

Only available in the US.
