The Chemakum people, who lived in the Chimacum Creek watershed, have been widely considered extinct and written out of history. In fact, there are many Chemakum descendants and they hold a family gathering each summer. In 2021, LEO was invited to photograph the families. Brian Goodman made these portraits with assistance of LEO members Tim Lawson, Robert Tognoli, and Kerry Tremain.
The exhibition opened on April 14, there is only one more chance for the public to view this exhibit–May 28, noon to 2 pm, at Chimacum High School, 91 West Valley Road, Chimacum, Washington. A book of the photographs with a text by Chemakum elder Rosalee Walz accompanies the exhibit. To purchase the book, go HERE
