There were two categories of the Malstrom Award this year.
The Book category award was received by the posthumously published Tulalip: From My Heart, An Autobiographical Account of a Reservation Community by Harriette Shelton Dover, edited by Darleen Fitzpatrick, foreword by Wayne Williams.
The award was accepted for Harriette by the editor and friend, Darleen Fitzpatrick.
Dover lived from 1904 to 1991, her life spanning nearly all of the 20th century. What Harriette has written about in this book is a story much larger than her own life, bringing together her knowledge from published histories and the teachings and memories of her tribal elders. She also tells her own experiences attending the cruel and punitive Tulalip Indian Boarding School, raising a family on the reservation, work and tribal politics, fishing rights and establishing a solid economy for Tulalips. She also reached back in time, through stories told by her elders, to the 1855 Point Elliott Treaty signing, then moves forward to modern-day Tulalip. Teacher, anthropologist, author, collaborator and friend Darleen Fitzpatrick served as editor of the book which was published by the University of Washington Press in 2013.
In the Projects category, the award was received by Cameron Johnson of the Everett Public Library for Buffalo Bill in the City of Smokestacks: The Wild West’s 1908 Everett appearance (a podcast audio drama with accompanying text and photos). Everett Public Library: Producer, Audio Engineer and Narrator Cameron Johnson; Voice Actors Van Ramsey, Eileen Simmons, Andrea Wallis, Ronald Averill, Lisa Labovitch, David Dilgard and Zac Matthews; Consultants David Dilgard (historical research) and Laura McCarty (audio engineer). The Buffalo Bill podcast was posted on the library website Sept. 22, 2013, the 105th anniversary of Buffalo Bill’s appearance in Everett.
