This was a great day and I'm glad I got to capture it!

You have to see this fantastic video of an amazing art project we did recently through Confluence Outdoors. Yakama artist Toma Villa arranged 90 students from White Salmon, Washington into the image of the famous petroglyph, She Who Watches. You may have seen a preview of this earlier. Now we have a new video that captures the experience more fully and more dramatically. Please share!

Oregon Native American Chamber

It was a pleasure to interview these incredibly smart and talented scholarship recipients. Thank you ONAC!

Every year ONAC provides Student Achievement Awards to Native American Students in Oregon and SW Washington. The aim of this program is to advance the educational and economic opportunities for students. This year ONAC awarded five $1,500 scholarships to Native American Students, Amanda Squiemphen-Yazzie, Candice Jimenez, Marissa Ahern, Sierra Sotela, and Jillisa Suppah.

Without the support from our Members, Partners, and Supporters we could not make impacts on these students lives. This year we would like to thank our current scholarship sponsors,Wenaha Group, City of Portland, Athletic and Outdoor Young Professionals - Portland, OR, Digital Native Consultants, and Beverly Terry.

Gratitude to Native videographer, Tule Films, for crafting this video for us.

This past year I have been working closely with Confluence to put together a series of short films for teachers to use in the classroom alongside the implementation of the curriculum developed through Senate Bill 13: Tribal History Shared History. While we have been developing these videos we have had the great opportunity to meet amazing folks like Elke and Alysia Littleleaf of Littleleaf Guides. We put together this short video to show you the great things they are doing with catch and release and the Water is Life movement. Please like and share the video to get the word out about the educational videos to come! Sepk'eec'a!

In April 2019, Confluence will be releasing a series of short films created by Woodrow Hunt of Tule Films. Check out a preview below, which includes an interview with Alysia and Elke of Littleleaf Guides.

January News from Confluence

Filmmaker Puts Indigenous Voices First

“We are not trying to give answers," says filmmaker Woodrow Hunt. "We are putting Native people in front of students and letting them tell their story.”

Hunt (Klamath/Modoc/Cherokee) is the founder of Tule Films and the creative force behind a series of ten documentary shorts Confluence will release April. These Stories from the River are made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts. The aim is to support teachers as they work to bring Indigenous perspectives into their classrooms. Hunt is using excerpts from a series of interviews Confluence conducted with Native elders and leaders.

Read more about Woodrow Hunt here: http://www.confluenceproject.org/news/artist-profile-woodrow-hunt/

Cultural Exploration in the Classroom

Confluence has developed a series of professional development workshops for teachers as they work to bring Indigenous perspectives into the classroom. Just this month, Confluence served 35 teachers at Childworks Learning Center in Portland through a half-day workshop on guiding principles in teaching Tribal history as Oregon history. Teachers went home with activities to engage students on a journey of inclusivity. Participants work on their own cultural self-awareness and cross-cultural understanding to become co-responsible for building healthy communities in their schools. Our leader for these workshops is Robin Butterfield of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and White Earth Ojibwas Tribe of Minnesota. She has over 45 years of experience in Native education. Thanks to the Gray Family Foundation and the Roundhouse Foundation for making this important work possible! Thanks also to Woodrow Hunt for these photos.

Upcoming Events:

Confluence will distribute these short films once per week over the next 10 weeks. We will try and share them as well. Stories from the River is a series of documentary shorts produced in collaboration with Tule Films and NW Documentary. Each documentary short has a specific theme -- this one is Lifeways -- but all have one overarching goal: to elevate Indigenous voices in our collective understanding of the Columbia River system.
Check out this series with ONAC Member Tule Films in collaboration with Confluence and NW Documentary. Beautiful work!
