confluence on the road
Confluence on the Road is an experiential opportunity for teachers and education leaders to dig deeper into the storied landscape of the Columbia River system. The journey includes guided visits to sites of cultural and environmental significance with Indigenous speakers to hear first-person insights into Native traditions and history. Participants come away with a richer understanding of sovereignty, cultural resilience and the value of reciprocity.
