Confluence Story Gathering at WSU-Vancouver

January 20, 2019

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. Join distinguished guest speakers; Tanna Engdahl, Cowlitz Spiritual Leader, Carol Craig, reporter for the Yakama News, and David Lewis, Tribal Historian and past manager of the Grand Ronde Cultural Resources Department, for Native-themed videos, produced by Woodrow Hunt (Cherokee, Klamath) of Tule Fims, and discussion. 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.

$10 suggested donations help with continued programming, $5 for Elders and students, please register here or donate at the door.

For questions, please contact Courtney Yilk, Program Manager, 360-693-0123, Courtney (at) ConfluenceProject.org.
