View the Oregon Historical Society’s traveling exhibit of Oregon’s Native American heritage, on display in the large meeting hall.
Curry Public Library is proud to host Oregon Is Indian Country, a special traveling exhibition of Oregon’s Native American heritage, on display January 9-February 20 in the large meeting hall during most library open hours.
First exhibited in 2009 at the Oregon Historical Society in Portland, Oregon Is Indian Country represents a groundbreaking project that brought together all nine federally recognized Oregon Tribes to present information, never-before-assembled in one exhibit, on contemporary indigenous cultures. This rich content is now available for museums and cultural institutions across the state as a traveling exhibit of vibrant banners.
The exhibit is a direct result of the Oregon Tribes Project, a multi-year collaboration between the Oregon Historical Society’s former Folklife Program and Oregon’s nine federally recognized Tribes. Tribal members documented their contemporary traditions and worked with Society staff to create a series of heritage resources, including the Oregon Is Indian Country traveling trunk that is available for educators.
Support for this exhibit is generously provided by the following organizations:
Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation; Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and the Siletz Tribal Council; Spirit Mountain Community Fund; Wildhorse Foundation; Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oregon State Library; National Endowment for the Arts; Oregon Arts Commission; Oregon Heritage Commission; Collins Foundation; Jackson Foundation; PGE Foundation; and Oregon Council for the Humanities.
