Since the Time of the Transformers: The Ancient Heritage of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, Ditidaht, and Makah
The Makah, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Ditidaht are closely related peoples who occupy the northern tip of the Olympic Peninsula and western Vancouver Island. In this compelling and comprehensive history of the area, Alan McMillan integrates all available sources of information into a single account, tracing the heritage of these peoples from the earliest archaeological evidence over 4,000 years ago to today’s communities.
Using recent data from the Toquaht Archaeological Project in Barkley Sound combined with historical evidence and oral traditions, McMillan demonstrates conclusively that there were extensive cultural changes and restructuring in these societies following contact with Europeans. Since the Time of the Transformers brings together over 100 years of research and will be of immense value to anyone interested in the culture history of this region.
