The legacy of an old people in southwest Washington is rich with descendants whom handle an increasing profile of wellness, training, medical research, housing, transport, development, elder care, conservation and legalities. The Cowlitz Tribe is just a force that is growing community building in just what are actually Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and elements of Pierce, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties, an enormous territory occupied by numerous Cowlitz villages just before non-Cowlitz research and seizure. Today, an elected Tribal Council consists of experts adept at handling programs that are multiple tasks.
Tribal members take part in an abundant social training of old Cowlitz lifeways such the Smelt, Salmon and River Ceremonies. They join seaside tribes in Canoe Journeys on major waterways. They drum and sing at ceremonies over summer and winter so when called upon for funerals, naming ceremonies, healings and event.
