Confluence and WSU Vancouver host the first Confluence Story Gathering of 2019 on Saturday, February 16th, from 4:00- 6:00 pm, at the Dengerink Building, Room 110, WSU-V.

Story Gatherings are intended to elevate indigenous voices in our collective understanding of place, specifically, the Columbia River system.

First-person storytelling 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 and experience of native leaders, as a way to explore the interconnectedness of people and places of the Columbia River system.
