A Story Gathering

A Story Gathering is a public forum intended to elevate indigenous voices in our understanding of the Columbia River system. A Confluence Story Gathering is a story-driven discussion, framed by excerpts from interview of native elders and leaders.

First-person story telling has a unique power to deepen our understanding of the histories, cultures and environment that surrounds us. Confluence Story Gatherings are welcoming forums that feature the stories of native elders, told in their own voices, as a way to explore the interconnectedness of people and places of the Columbia River system. The event features video or audio selections of first-person narratives, produced by our partners at NW Documentary, followed by a discussion led by a panel of native elders, leaders and writers.
