Thanks from Dave (2021 and 1897)

I’m thankful to you, my Chinook-loving readers!

Here’s another thankful Dave in a historical Chinuk Wawa anecdote:

cultus indian dave

Cultus Indian Dave lost the key to the padlock that locks his house. Anybody finding and returning it to Dave will receive his thanks in broken English, Siwash and Chinook.

— from the Hood River (OR) Glacier of July 16, 1897, page 3, column 1

A happy & thoughtful US Thanksgiving to you!
