About the Author

Darleen Fitzpatrick is the author of We Are Cowlitz: Traditional and Emergent Ethnicity.


Tulalip, From My Heart is a rich addition to the history of Pacific Northwest Coast tribes and accomplishes Dover's aim to tell Tulalip history from the inside in order to create a more complete historical narrative.-- Laurie Arnold * Montana: The Magazine of Western History *

Weaves adeptly between the personal, the communal, and the political....succeeds in telling a story of the past, even as it complicates the academy's categories of what counts as history.

-- Danae A. Jacobson * Pacific Northwest Quarterly *

Boarding school education, treaties, and reservation life are three topics of many that Dover raises from the welcome perspective of a Native American woman who struggled to survive through those trying and troubling times. Anyone seeking a deeper and richer understanding of Native American history, as well as the growth and development of the reservation community at Tulalip, and Dover's long-standing efforts in adulthood to revive the cultural practices and traditions that the Bureau of Indian Affairs had been so obsessed with stamping out, will find Tulalip, From My Heart an indispensable resource.

-- Cary C. Collins * Oregon Historical Quarterly *
