The Research Process

This guide is designed to help you locate resources about Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest. 

Keep in mind that you will need 5 sources related to the tribe you have selected to complete the research assignment.  
Good Luck!

The Native Report Assignment

Select one particular Native American tribe living in the Pacific Northwest.  Write a report on the pre-contact cultural aspects of that particular tribe.  See a list of tribes under the "Tribes" tab of this guide (or on your assignment sheet) for ideas.

Include the following information in your report:

  • Location
  • Cultural Group (Coastal, plateau, etc.)
  • Food 
  • Transportation
  • Art
  • Tools and Implements
  • Major Language Group
  • Clothing
  • Types of Shelter
  • Ceremonies
  • One Legend


    As an alternative you may research and write a report on one of the following topics:  Art, mythology/religion, women's roles, men's roles, etc. 

    You will need to include 5 sources (encyclopedia, internet, book, periodical, etc.).  The internet will count as one source so you will need to use other sources.
