The Chinook people were among the last to encounter European-American settlers pushing west after the Revolutionary War. When President Thomas Jefferson concluded the Louisiana Purchase from France, his Corps of Discovery unit from the US Army led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark encountered the Chinook along the Lower Columbia River when the Corps reached the Pacific coast.
