Voices of the River Opening Reception

March 10, 2024
2pm to 4pm
at The History Museum of Hood River County- 300 E Port Marina Drive, Hood River.

Voices of the River (VOTR) is a story-driven display that introduces visitors to the Columbia River system’s Indigenous history, living cultures and ecologies. Please join us for the opening reception at the Hood River History Museum from 2-4pm on Sunday, March 10th.

It is a collaborative video based production from Confluence, Filmmaker, Woodrow (Woody) Hunt (Klamath/Modoc/Cherokee) and the Confluence Native Cultural Advisory Community. VOTR shares Indigenous experiences, needs, and perspectives to:

  • strengthen Indigenous presence in public spaces and educate people about culturally significant places along the Columbia River
  • honor the efforts, love, and sacrifice of Native partners, and their ancestors, for the River
  • ask visitors take part in caring for the River

Touchscreen navigation leads the visitor along the river with a selection of Native speakers.


This exhibit is made possible through the support of the Oregon Community Foundation, The Cowlitz Tribal Foundation, and the Wildhorse Foundation.
