Who Was Chief Seattle?

July 13 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Free

Come hear historian David Buerge, author of Chief Seattle and the Town that Took His Name, in Coupeville on July 13. Chief Seattle wrote nothing down during his life, yet his words—both real and imagined—are known throughout the world. The result is a man made up of both historical and fictional aspects, from which conflicting messages can be gleaned. As an engaging long-time educator and former historian to the Duwamish tribe, Buerge is uniquely placed to write the first biography of Chief Seattle for adults.
