Traditionally, the Columbia Plateau of the Pacific Northwest was inhabited by Native Americans who spoke different languages but shared major cultural patterns. They lived on localized but reliable food resources such as salmon and camas roots, and shared access to those resources while assigning stewardship rights to them. Their pattern of winter villages and dispersed summer task group camps, complemented by special gatherings of friends, relatives, and trading partners at fishing sites and root grounds, allowed them maximum flexibility in dealing with a diverse and sometimes lean environment.
