Past Exhibit - "Stories of the River, Stories of the People: Memory on the Klamath River Basin"

Last Updated: 6/19/2014

Exhibit Show Dates: March 15 - June 16, 2014

This exhibit consists of photographs and recorded interviews relating to the grassroots activism to remove the dams on the Klamath River and the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement of 2010. Guest curator Brittani Orona, an enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe and Public History M.A. Candidate, has created this exhibit in an effort to combine oral history and exhibition techniques to convey the cultural meaning and memory of the Klamath River to the tribes of the Northwest region of California.

"All the items you will see in this exhibit are on loan from different tribal activists, artists and elders and in some cases, non Native allies. The items represent the memories of tribal members who have invested their energy in presenting the Klamath River Basin for generations to come."
