Abstract

American and British (Hudsons Bay Company) treaties with the Klallam are compared and analyzed for the effects the policies had on culture change ca. 1850-1865. Also included in this study are discussions of aboriginal culture and ethnohistory to 1840's, aboriginal villages and post-contact movements, and an overview of the present- day Klallam communities- Using ethnohistorical materials to determine culture change, it was found that the policies outlined in the American Treaty of Point-No-Point caused the Klallam in Washington Territory to change fairly rapidly while the policies instituted in the British Fort Victoria Treaties allowed the Klallam of Vancouver Island to remain nearer to an aboriginal state.
