and to the most di tinguisheJ. a
flag. Their names v.-ere Concom
tnoiv and Chillahlawil. One of the
Indiana (Concomly?) had a robe
made of two sea otte? skins, the
fur- of which was the most beau
tiful we had ever seen; the own
er resisted every temptation to
part, with It, but at length could -not
resist the offer of a belt of
blue beads which Chaboneau's
wife (Sacagawea) wore round her
waist." While the women's gar
ments of the lower Columbia peo
ple' may not have been character
ized by any particular elegance,
they were distinctive enough to
receive more than passing men
tion by Lewis and Clark. The
hula-hula effect of the skirt seems
to have made a considerable im
pression upon the intrepid explor
ers; of 1803. The costume of the
Wahkiakum women is thus graph
ically described: "The women are
clad in a peculiar manner, the
ro$e not reaching lower than the
hi, and the body being covered
in cold weather by a sort of cor
set of fur, curiously plaited, and
reaching from the arms to the
hip; added to this is a sort of pet
ticoat, or rather tissue of white
cedar bark, bruised or broken in
to small strands, and woven into
a girdle by several cords of the
same material. Being tied round
the middle, these strands hang
down as low as the knee in front
and to mid-leg behind, and are of
sufficient thickness to answer the
purpose of concealment whilst the
female stands in an erect position,
but in any other attitude is but a
very ineffectual defence. Some
times the tissue is silk-grass
twisted and knotted at the end."
Much has been written concern
ing the repulsive appearance of
tho natives of the lower Columbia
region. No doubt the physical
eharacteristis of these natives
most disagreeably affecting the
whites was the head deformity,
artificially induced. Sloping fore
heads were quite the fashion
among the Chinookana; accord-
ugly, each toad mother who was
a member of 'those tribes, -with
the aid of a board fixed upon the
plastic brow of her babe, practiced
the gentle art of beadflattenlng.
Slaves were not permitted to al
ter the cranial conformation of
their offspring. Hence, the sharp
ly sloping forehead served as a
mark ot distinction, indicating
membership in the dominant
class. Chinookan head-malformation
was a painless process which
resulted In no real injury to the
(Santee, in describing the boats
of the Chinook?, inserts a foot
note -taken from Smith's "Begin
nings in Oregon" In which the
claim is made that "the model of
the clipper ships was taken from
the early Chinook canoes." This
is a claim worthy to be generally
known, If true.)
