Northwest history is a popular subject these days. Bookstores have shelves filled with writings about the pioneers, the Astor party, the Lewis and Clark expedition and the history of Portland, Oregon.

But what about the people who were already settled here when those pioneers arrived?

What do folks today know about the earlier Oregonians who fished for salmon in the Willamette River and watched the late-day sun light up Mount Hood — thousands of years before Portland got its name?

“Broken Treaties” introduces OPB viewers to Oregon’s tribes and explores a thread of the story that isn’t told well in those shelves of history books.
