Impacts of Colonization on the Straits Salish


The San Juan Islands are the traditional territory of the Straits Salish people. Beginning in 1790, they continued to inhabit the islands, but were impacted by European exploration, the fur trade, new diseases, treaties, homestead acts, and Euro-American exploitation of the salmon fishery. Today the Straits Salish remain connected to the islands through fishing, culture, language, Canoe Journeys, and more.
