Our library holds a collection of resources aimed at informing teachers, students, and anyone interested to learn about Coast Salish territories, peoples, cultures and languages, stories and legends, about the traditional Salish art style and contemporary Salish artists.

These resources consist of audio recordings, videos, information about relevant websites and links to them, synopses of books with names of author and publisher, as well as documents of all sorts – booklets, guides, transcripts of interviews – and links to their source.
