Oregon trail pioneers encounter canoes in the Puget Sound
Original caption: a fleet of Siwash canoes. Illustration by F. N. Wilson, from a memoir by Oregon Trail pioneer Ezra Meeker, in a section describing exploration of the Puget Sound area in the mid 1800s. Note: The term "Siwash" does not indicate a specific Native American people; the term comes from Chinook jargon, and was a generic and pejorative term for Native Americans.
