In Washington State History, we complete our study on the geographical features of Washington State and have begun studying the Native Americans of our state. The students have been busy researching different historical aspects of the various Coastal and Plateau Indians. We are reading and dissecting "The Medicine Creek Treaty of 1854" made between Issac I. Stevens and the Nisqually, Puyallup, Steilacoom, Squawskin, S'Homamish, Stehchass, T'Peeksin, Squi-aitl, and Sa-heh-wamish tribes. On their own, they are reading whether the treaties were broken or not.
After the Native American unit, we will be learning about Early European Explorers.
