Refer to the information contained in the pop-up windows in the map as you answer each of the following questions:
1) The image by Phillip Dayton of natives fishing at the Falls of the Willamette south of Portland is one of the first such images by a European artist. Describe both the setting and the approach of the Indians in capturing salmon.
2) David Thompson and John Kirk Townsend describe markedly different experiences regarding native villages in the Columbia Basin and regard for salmon. Compare and contrast the descriptions of these men, one on the Columbia River near the Canadian border and the other in eastern Idaho on the Snake River.
3) Native methods of curing salmon for winter storage were different from those brought from New England by American explorers. Compare these methods as described by David Thompson and Nathaniel Wyeth.
4) (Extra) For this activity you will need to open your own copy of the Early Exploration map.
