INDIAN COUNTRY EXHIBIT TRAVELS TO BEND
The Des Chutes Historical Museum will host Warm Springs tribal elder Adeline Miller at 1 p.m. Aug. 8 in celebration of the opening of an exhibit of Oregon's Native American heritage, "Oregon Is Indian Country."
Showing Aug. 8 - 30, the exhibit is presented in three parts, each visible at a different location. The Des Chutes Historical Museum, Deschutes Public Library Bend Branch and the High Desert Museum have
teamed up to bring the exhibit to Bend, each hosting one theme of the exhibit. The Des Chutes Historical Museum is host to "Traditions That Bind", detailing how traditions passed down through the generations from elders like Adeline Miller have sustained and carried American Indian heritage into the 21st century.
Oregon Is Indian Country represents a groundbreaking project bringing all nine Oregon tribes together to present information never-before-assembled in one exhibit on contemporary indigenous cultures. Utilizing native voices, traditions, and art forms, as well as historic artifacts and photographs, the exhibition and public programs are designed to educate people about Oregon's contemporary tribes.
