Dr. Lewis will be talking about the rich Native American history of the Willamette Valley and locally in the West Hills and Sauvie Island prior to the area’s colonization by European settlers. The talk will include the different tribes, their relationships and connections to the land, their contact with the first white settlers, their government, and their forced relocation. Please join us for this rare opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for this place we now call our home.
