Archaeological evidence of human habitation in the Columbia Plateau of the Pacific Northwest extends to 13,000 B.C., earlier records having been destroyed when glacial ice caused flooding of major drainages. With the passing of the ice sheets, changes in climate influenced the development of various cultural patterns that ultimately evolved into a tradition which endured until the modern era. Features of this tradition were reliance on salmon and root crops for food, drying and storage of food for winter use, permanent winter villages, and secondary reliance on game animals and shellfish.
