Native Voices Symposium says
Chris Coleman's adaptation of "Astoria" tells the story of two journeys across land and sea to the modern day city of Astoria, Oregon. In Part I, the overland party journeys from Missouri to Oregon, and interacts with five native tribes each representing different native languages and cultures. In Part II, premiering in 2018, tribes native to the Northwest will be prominently featured, as Astoria becomes an epicenter of the Northwest fur trade.

On January 22, learn more about the languages and cultures that the journeymen interacted with at a special symposium on the indigenous history, art and contemporary issues of the Columbia river peoples and hear from individual artists and experts representing those cultures. Deana Dartt, PhD, an independent scholar and curator, will moderate a panel including Elizabeth Woody, Oregon Poet Laureate (Warm Springs/Yakama), Tony Johnson (Tribal Chair of the Chinook Nation), and David Lewis, PhD, Ethnohistorian (Grand Ronde).

The Native Voices Symposium on January 22 is free and open to the public, no reservation or ticket required. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be available. Learn more here: https://www.pcs.org/blog/native-voices-symposia-on-native-american-art-and-literature
