In this interview, Eva Shaw and Arthur J. Damman---early settlers in Washington state---speak about Chinook jargon, or the language used by white and indigenous residents of the Pacific Northwest to trade and interact in the 19th century. Shaw and Damman hold a conversation in Chinook jargon to demonstrate.
