Native American Ethnobotany of Western Oregon
June 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm$15
During this four-hour workshop, Greg Archuleta will share the history of, and the importance of our native plants to, the Tribes of our region – including the Chinook from along the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, the Molalla of the Cascade Foothills, the Kalapuya of the Willamette Valley and the Tillamook people from the Oregon Coast, and the Umpqua, Takelma (Rogue River) and Shasta of southern Oregon.
Information on the many uses of the plants will be shared through discussion, demonstration and an hour-long guided hike along the 4-H Center trails. Workshop attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities using traditional plants, including cordage making, basic basketry techniques and other native art design techniques.
