Description: In 2003, a backhoe digging a massive dry dock in Washington state discovered the archaeological find of a generation: Tse-whit-zen village, heart of the long-buried homeland of the Klallam people and one of the largest, oldest Indian village sites in the region. But when workers disturbed hundreds of burials and human remains, Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe chairwoman Frances Charles asked the state to walk away from more than70 million in public money and find a new site. The state, in an unprecedented decision that reverberated around the nation, agreed. Seattle Times reporter Lynda V. Mapes spent more than a year interviewing tribal members, archaeologists, historians, city and state officials, and local residents and business leaders. The result is this beautifully crafted and compassionate account, with more than 100 photographs, that illuminates the history of Tse-whit-zen, the impacts of contact and forced assimilation, and the decisions to build, then abandon the dry dock, as well as the implications of those controversial events.
