Voices of the River Volume 1

The Voices of the River Journal is an extension of the work Confluence does in public gatherings, education programs in schools, and our Digital Library that features interviews, documentary shorts, photo galleries, and research papers on these subject managers exclusively from an Indigenous perspective. Volume I features pieces by Rachel Cushman (Chinook), Chance White Eyes (Oneida), Sean Smith (Chinook), Emily Washines (Yakama), Carlee Wilson (Chinook), poetry by Ed Edmo (Shoshone-Bannock), and first-person narratives from Linda Meanus (Warm Springs/Celilo) and Confluence Founding Board Chair Antone Minthorn (CTUIR), with accompanying art by Tommy Greyeyes (Navajo). A generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities supported Volume I.
