During the summer the women wore long grass skirts and grass capes around their shoulders that tied around their necks. The Tillamook women created these articles of clothing with cedar bark and long grass. When winter came the women wore buckskin hide dresses and skirts, with woven basket hats.
Throughout the region women wore skirts or gowns of buckskin, soft leather, or woven wool or plant fibers. Men’s dress varied from tribe to tribe but was in general quite minimal—most men wore nothing but ornaments on warm days. For protection from the rain, they had cedar-bark raincoats and a brimmed hat.
The Tillamook are a Native American tribe from coastal Oregon of the Salish linguistic group. The name ” Tillamook ” is a Chinook language term meaning “people of [the village] Nekelim (or Nehalem)”, sometimes it is given as a Coast Salish term, meaning “Land of Many Waters”.
Like the other Indian nations of the Northwest Coast, the Tillamook had permanent villages which consisted of several houses, a women’s house, sweathouses, and a graveyard containing raised canoe burials. Tillamook houses were rectangular and constructed from horizontal cedar planks.
In the case of the Tillamook Nation, which includes the Nehalem and Nestucca tribes, the primary language spoken was Salish. “The men spoke Salish,” said Beach, “but the women tended to be bilingual or trilingual, because they were from somewhere else.”
The Tillamook travelled north to the Columbia River where they traded for abalone shell, dentalia, buffalo hides and buffalo horn dishes, and for dried Columbia River salmon. The Tualatin Kalapuya often travelled into Tillamook country to trade and intermarriage between the two tribes was common.
The people of the Northwest Coast learned to exploit the natural waterways in the area, and became very skilled fishermen. Pacific Salmon was abundant in the waters, and became the most important food resource of the people.
