Historic Fort Steilacoom continues its 2020 lecture series on Sunday October 18th via Zoom. Tribal Chair Danny Marshall of the Steilacoom Indian Tribe will present “Steilacoom People and the Land”. His lecture will begin at 2 p.m.
In 1849 Fort Steilacoom was established on the traditional lands of the Steilacoom Indian Tribe. What impact did this, along with the arrival of Territorial Governor Isaac Ingalls Stevens and the Medicine Creek Treaty of 1854, have on the Steilacoom People and their land? Join us as Tribal Chair Danny Marshall shares not only what the impacts were, but how the Steilacoom People have dealt with them and their struggle to continue as a tribe.
Since there are limited spaces available for this free lecture, current Historic Fort Steilacoom members will have the exclusive opportunity to register on a first-come-first served basis until Sunday, October 4th.
Beginning on October 5th, provided there are still spaces available, registration will be opened to the general public. Registration will close on October 14th. You will receive your Zoom invitation via email after the close of registration.
