Thread Name: Chinook Jargon Songs
Subject: RE: Chinook Jargon Songs
I put some Chinook words into a song about fishing in Copper River..

It's chuck skookumchuck hiyu potlach skookumchuck
Chuck skooumchuck hiyu potlach skookumchuck
Chuck skookumchuck ...salmon muck a muck
GOing after Copper River salmon in the spring

And I can not possibly speak for Chinook people, but their tribal recognition was not denied by the government per se. Other tribes were involved. It is complex and sensitive and people would have to research it themselves.
