Vi Hilbert

Indian Country Today has a very nice article on the passing of Skagit elder Vi Hilbert. She "devoted her adult life to the preservation of Coast Salish culture and the Lushootseed language – a language she once described as “the most beautiful language in the world... She founded the Lushootseed Research Center in Seattle and taught at the University of Washington and at Evergreen State College." We have a few of the books she was involved with in the library.
