Confluence Project Story Gathering Event

February 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Confluence Story Gatherings Honor Indigenous Voices
October 14, 2016

On Saturday, November 12, Confluence kicked off a series of public forums that are intended to elevate indigenous voices in our understanding of the Columbia River system. Confluence Story Gatherings are story-driven discussions, framed by excerpts from interviews of native elders and leaders. The first of these events happened at the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute in Pendleton.

Join us for these Confluence Story Gatherings in the future:
Feb. 18 | 2-4 pm: Liberty Theater, Astoria

First-person story telling has a unique power to deepen our understanding of the histories, cultures and environment that surrounds us. Confluence Story Gatherings are welcoming forums that feature the stories of native elders, told in their own voices, as a way to explore the interconnectedness of people and places of the Columbia River system. The events will feature video or audio selections of first-person narratives, produced by our partners at NW Documentary, followed by a discussion led by a panel of native elders, leaders and writers.

Confluence Story Gathering interviewees so far include: Greg Archuleta (Grand Ronde), Virginia Beavert (Yakama), Roberta and Leah Conner (Umatilla), Johnny Jackson (Yakama), Louie Pitt (Warm Springs), Aurelia Staccona (Warm Springs), Wilfred and Bessie Scott (Nez Perce) and Wilbur Slockish (Yakama).

Confluence Story Gatherings are free and open to the public.

These events are sponsored by a generous grant from the Oregon Community Foundation. Support for Confluence interviews comes from Paul B. and Deborah D. Speer, Steve and Jan Oliva and Broughton and Mary Bishop.
