  • 1. The Chinook Presented by: Lillian Endo
  • 2. The Chinook inhabited the area around the Columbia River in Washington, and Oregon, and the British Columbia..
  • 3. Lifestyle
    • The Chinook lived on the west coast, in the parts of what is now Oregon and Washington state. If you've been there, you'll know that it's a rather cold climate, and it rains constantly. However, the Chinook managed to survive. They built and lived in long wooden houses, commonly called 'longhouses'.
  • 4. Lifestyle (Continued)
    • The Chinook often put totem poles in front of their house to show their social rank, and how many generations were living there.
  • 5. Lifestyle (Continued)
    • They lived by fishing , but most often hunted deer and elk. Like most Native Americans of their time, they traded with other tribes for things such as furs.
