Flathead och Pend d'Oreille 


Flathead (Salish) och Pend d'Oreille

Ql’ispé (Pend d’Oreille or Kalispel) and Séliš (Salish or Flathead) People : Flathead Watershed Sourcebook

Till det yttre torde Flatheads/Salish gjort ett intryck som var nästan mer prärieindianskt än prärieindianeran själva. Sannolikt hade man större hästhjordar också. Dessutom ansågs de en smula mer vänliga och fria från arrogans. Det gällde rent generellt om Platåindianerna. 
Ett intressant exempel från platåområdet av hur Flatheads kunde te sig för en besökande är följande: ”Generally the Indian loves everything that flutters in the wind. Thus he wears his hair long; his horse’s tail and mane are long He loves to have hides fringed and uses color ribbons Evrey kind if fringe and feather, but especially eagle feathers, pleases him so much that very often he would not relenquish this kind of things of this kind for a whole world full of useful goods. And it must be admitted that in the eyes of a vain man the costume of an Indian riding through camp at full gallop is not without its charm"
 (Point : Wilderness kingdom s 110)
