Panel On Native Languages says
Astoria: Part One tells the journey by land and sea to the modern day city of Astoria, Oregon, and the many dangers and joys the company experiences en route. On the way, the team meets and receives guidance from Native Americans representing the Arikara, Iowa, Shoshone, and Hawaiian nations. Of course, the journeymen and the Native Americans don't speak the same language.

For the world premiere of Astoria, Voice & Text Director Mary McDonald-Lewis turned to Elwood Mose and Loren Yellow Bird Sr. for guidance in staging the languages with the utmost degree of authenticity. Hear Mr. Mose and Mr. Yellow Bird Sr. share their unique perspectives on language and indigenous cultures at a special panel discussion.

Sunday, January 29
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

Open to the public, no ticket required. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be available.
