Listening to the Land: Our Coast Through Indian Eyes
To the indigenous people of Oregon’s north coast, geography and culture are inseparable: tribal beliefs and life ways all begin with the land. Join Richard and Roberta Basch, descendents of the north coast’s first people, as they share stories about geography, culture, and caring for the land. As members of the Clatsop-Nehalem Confederated Tribes, Richard and Roberta will speak about the spirit of the land and its generosity to those who lived south of the mouth of the Columbia prior to European-American settlement and to their descendants who continue to live here. At this free event, they will share their knowledge of medicinal plants and discuss the responsibility of all people to care for the land and keep it alive.
