Confluence at Celilo Park

Dedication Ceremony for Confluence Listening Circle at Chief Timothy Park

April 28, 2015

In 2005, the Nez Perce blessed the site at Chief Timothy Park for the Confluence Listening Circle, designed by Maya Lin. This is a gathering place, an amphitheater sculpted into the landscape with basalt, It is a place to listen. It’s 2015 and Confluence is delighted to be working with friends from Nez Perce homelands, Asotin and Nez Perce counties to be hosting a dedication to celebrate the completed project. We hope you will join us.

Confluence would like to thank the Clearwater River Casino, the presenting sponsor for the dedication, and the Hells Canyon Visitors Bureau for their generous support!
