Native Seattle, second edition

Histories from the Crossing-Over Place, Second Edition

This updated edition of Native Seattle brings the indigenous story to the present day and puts the movement of recognizing Seattle's Native past into a broader context. Native Seattle focuses on the experiences of local indigenous communities on whose land Seattle grew, accounts of Native migrants to the city and the development of a multi-tribal urban community, as well as the role Native Americans have played in the narrative of Seattle.

About the Authors

Coll Thrush is associate professor of history at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of Indigenous London: Native Travelers at the Heart of Empire.

Review

"Native Seattle offers a dynamic new model for writing urban and Indian histories together. Thrush successfully challenges narratives of progress in U.S. history that imply that modernity is predicated on the decline of Native people. . . . By demonstrating how white place-stories involving disappearing Indians have shaped our accounts, he successfully works to restore both the deeper history of urban places as well as the influence of Native people in the subsequent development of cities."—Journal of American History

"Coll Thrush's book has importance far beyond the history of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest . . . revolutionary in his approach to the broad nature of Seattle's indigenous history. . . . This book will endure."—Pacific Northwest Quarterly

"[A] vivid retelling of Native history in Seattle, and it is an incredible history. . . . We have tremendous roots, we just don't know it. So read this."—The Stranger
