On the Beach Chinook

"Catherine Hawks"

An old Chinook woman with staff and clam basket makes her way slowly over the mud flats of the southern end of Shoalwater bay, in Washington.  Chíish, Burden-Basket, Catherine Hawks, is one of a very few survivors of the populous tribe that formerly occupied that part of the state of Washington lying between the middle of Shoalwater bay and the Columbia.
