On behalf of Ooligan Press, PSU would like to invite you to the launch party for David G. Lewis’s new book, Tribal Histories of the Willamette Valley. The event is on November 14 at Five Oaks Museum, 17677 NW Springville Rd, Portland, OR 97229, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

The Willamette Valley is rich with history—its riverbanks, forests, and mountains home to the tribes of Kalapuya, Chinook, Molalla, and more for thousands of years. This history has been largely unrecorded, incomplete, poorly researched, or partially told. In these stories, enriched by photographs and maps, Oregon Indigenous historian David G. Lewis combines years of researching historical documents and collecting oral stories, highlighting Native perspectives about the history of the Willamette Valley as they experienced it.

For more information about Tribal Histories of the Willamette Valley, please see the Ooligan Press website.

David G. Lewis will be giving a presentation and answering audience questions. He will also be signing books, which can be purchased at the event.

This event is free and open to the public.
