How have Seattle area land and waters been shaped by humans? Often telling this history relies on documentation from European and American settlers, minimizing and mythologizing the contributions of indigenous peoples. Building on research for her book The River That Made Seattle: A Human and Natural History of the Duwamish, author BJ Cummings uses new primary sources to shed light on seven generations of Native family histories long obscured by colonial narratives.

MOHAI’s annual “Denny Lecture” presents the very best in regional historical scholarship. Join us at MOHAI (Museum of History & Industry) as we return to an in person “Denny Lecture.”
