This digital history box is packed with information and interactive activities to help students learn about the Coast Salish people. Explore objects in 3D, interactive maps, watch videos, and see the objects from images in our collection come to life!
Coming Soon

We’re creating digital versions of our History Boxes for educators to use in classrooms! Three-dimensional scans of artifacts and educator resources and more are included in these digital wonders. Best of all, you can bring these to your students no matter where you’re located. Check back soon for a reservation link!
