  • On March 25, 1985, a story-telling event was held at the Upper Skagit Tribal Building near Sedro Woolley, Washington. Seven tribes were gathered to celebrate in the old way. Elders from these tribes sang songs and recited the ancient stories. The tales include: "Grizzly Bear on the Warpath," "Bear and Ant," "Rock and Coyote," "Snipe and Jellyfish," "Bear and the Man" and "When the Mountains Were People." An historical document enabling future generations to see and hear a small sample of the traditions of the native people of the Puget Sound region.
