May

America’s relationship with history is changing and, with it, our views of public monuments. Debates are raging in towns and cities across the nation. Some monuments have come down, others defaced. Join us for a virtual conversation with writer Sarah Vowell to explore the national recalibration that’s underway over how America expresses its stories and values in public spaces.

Join Confluence for an online film screening of Gather and a live, online conversation with cast members. Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political, and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.

The Confluence Field School is a series of story-driven virtual experiences designed to elevate Indigenous voices in our understanding of the Columbia River system. This year’s Field School is scheduled for September and October and is designed for conservation groups and agency land managers to learn more about Traditional Ecological Knowledge so that they can bring Indigenous lessons to the land. Space is limited.
