A new children’s book by Warm Springs Elder Linda Meanus is hitting shelves this June, entitled My Name is LaMoosh. In today’s episode, we talk to Linda as well as Dr. Katy Barber (PSU) who supported her in this project.
“At Celilo Falls, the energy of the water was really powerful. I could just feel the mist spray your face, even if you stood far away. The falls had a roar that was so loud you could hear it from miles and miles away. Even in the next town over, The Dalles, you could hear it. It was an echo that you could feel in your heart.” Read this piece by Linda Meanus, about her memories of Celilo Falls.
Listen to this podcast from the archives. This episode of Oregon Territory first aired on Oregon Public Broadcasting on March 9, 2007, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the flooding of Celilo Falls.
