Culture Day is a celebration of the reclamation of traditional lands for Indigenous Peoples that provides an accurate cultural experience for the whole community. This free, all-ages event offers the chance to listen and learn from Indigenous educators in the culturally rich land now known as Tryon Creek State Natural Area.
In a short forest walk, participants can go from the Nature Center classroom, shelter and trails to see first-hand the traditional lifeways of Northwest Oregon Tribes. Indigenous educators will share examples of cordage making, carving, basketry, first foods, necklace making, and weaving.
This event is supported by a grant from Oregon Humanities
