Masters of the Pacific Coast
Ep: 1 "Arrival"
In this two-part documentary series, archaeologist Dr. Jago Cooper travels to the Pacific Northwest to tell the story of the Indigenous peoples who have lived here for over 10,000 years. Along the rugged, windswept coastline of what is now the Alaskan panhandle, British Columbia and Washington State, the Tlingit, Haida, Coast Salish and other nations mastered a tough environment to create unique, complex communities and art infused with meaning. They were very nearly wiped out - by foreign disease, oppression and theft of their lands - but were sustained by their rich culture and a deep connection to the environment, which endure to this day.
