About Suzanne


Chinook Indians CoverFrom Heinemann Library Native Americans:

These carefully developed titles paint a realistic picture of life during the time when each Native American culture flourished, including details about daily routines, family life, spiritual practices, housing, and natural environment. Each book was developed with the help of leaders and members of tribes and nations and concludes with a discussion of how these cultures continue to flourish today.


I lived in the Northwest for many years and taught in the Portland area. I asked to write this book. It was an amazing mental journey. Tony Johnson, of the Chinook Tribe, was always honest and patient with me. I learned much from him. You’ll see his photos of canoe building in the Chinook Indians.
