First Thursday at the Museum: Chinook Nation, Past & Present

The Clark County Historical Museum invites you to join them in welcoming Chinook Nation Vice Chairman Sam Robinson for a special First Thursday Museum After Hours event on Thursday, Nov. 2. In his presentation, “Persistence for Survival – Chinook People Past & Present,” Robinson will discuss the history of the Chinook Nation’s existence and relationship to the United States from contact to the continuing struggle for Federal status.

First Thursday lectures at the museum run from February to November. On the first Thursday of every month during that period, the museum is open from 5 to 9 p.m. Lectures begin at 7 p.m. Museum members get in free; otherwise, regular admission rates apply unless noted otherwise. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, $3 for children under 18, and free with a museum membership.

First Thursday at the museum is also a great time to see the CCHM’s current exhibits, like “ALL ABOARD! Clark County Rides the Rails,” “Food for Thought – Clark County’s Food History,” and “Making Beauty: Native Beadwork of North America.” To learn more, Call 360-993-5679, email, or visit
