Coast Salish

The Coast Salish Peoples inhabited the coast of the mainland from Bute Inlet in British Columbia to the Columbia River, dividing Washington and Oregon and those areas on Vancouver Island not occupied by the Kwak-Waka’wakw (Kwaguitl) and the Nuu-Chah-Nulth (“Nootka”), from Johnstone Straight to Port San Juan. They also occupied vast areas of western Washington state.

Coast Salish artists are imaginative artists with ancient traditions in carving.
