Meet Real Indians!

PRESS RELEASE from TUALATIN-- Eirik Thorsgard, MAIS, Cultural Protection Coordinator of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon will be at the Tualatin Historical Society on December 3, 2008, 1:15 PM. The presentation will be at the Tualatin Heritage Center.

Thorsgard will discuss recent discoveries at Wapato Lake (near Gaston). The lake was the base home for Ki-a-Kuts, headman of the Atfalati (or, "Tualatin") Band of the Kalapuyan Tribe. Ki-a-Kuts negotiated and reluctantly signed the 1855 treaty with the United States which relocated the Kalapuyans to the Grand Ronde reservation. In 2007, the Tualatin Historical Society successfully proposed the name of "Ki-a-Kuts" for a pedestrian bridge over the Tualatin River.

At the Ory-Gone Historical Society

Lilly Morgan Half Hiding behind a Show Card with Our Mission Statement on it.Clyde the Trail Guide frantically Playing his Banjo.Lilly said: "Wow!! I'm pumped! I think I'm ready to go to the Oregon Historical Society today! I will have all my stuff at the [Sherwood] high school. Pick me up in front of the school at 3:45. We will proceed to OHS and hope to be there for a meeting at 4:30. I think that we will be able to set up our stuff in the main hallway of the place, off to the side of the main desk. I think we are to be at our posts at 5:00. Dress in your Trail Guide outfit, JayCee. Bring yer banjo, but only if you feel like it. I have no idea where to park. Maybe we can dump our stuff off at OHS and then park"
