The Mobile Museum is excited to add two of these three Lower Columbia River Chinook/Salish First Nation style replica knives created by Steve Alley 2018 to the mobile Museum educational displays and tours.
The middle one with the maple handle is probably the most accurate example with classic Tsagiglalal, “She Who Watches” motif carving still looks out across the Columbia River from the basalt cliff where she was painted by Chinookan People somewhere between the years 1700 and 1840. The other two knives have yew wood handles and traditional agate blades.
Chinookan peoples include several groups of indigenous First Nations people of the Pacific Northwest in the United States who speak the Chinookan languages. In the early 19th century, the Chinookan-speaking peoples resided along the Lower and Middle Columbia River from the river’s gorge downstream to the river’s mouth, and along adjacent portions of the coasts, from Tillamook Bay of present-day Oregon in the south, north to Willapa Bay in southwest Washington. In 1805 the Lewis and Clark Expedition encountered the Chinook tribe on the lower Columbia. The name ″Chinook″ came from a Chehalis word Tsinúk for the inhabitants of and a particular village site on Baker Bay.

Big thank you goes to Jonathan Rowan, Tlingit Naalx carver from Klawock, Alaska for this amazing functional Halibut Hook donation to the Mobile Museum!
It will be great to share your halibut hook, fishing culture, and pictures of Thomas with students in BC.

The BC Mobile Museum is an engaging and hands-on learning experience mixed with good times and humor that has created a successful learning and connecting environment for students in the BC lower mainland area since 2015. It is a very valuable educational resource for all BC students from grades K to 12.
