The Kalapuya Then and Now


Wednesday, October 4, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

You are invited to join us for the Chepenefu Lecture Series in honor of the Chepenefu Kalapuya people who have inhabited the Marys River Valley (Corvallis, Philomath, and Wren) for thousands of years. David Harrelson, Tribal Cultural Heritage Officer of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, will give the first lecture in the series: The Kalapuya Then and Now.

Spring Creek Project is a proud co-sponsor of the Chepenefu Lecture Series with the Marys Peak Group of the Sierra Club. The Chepenefu Lectures will honor the Chepenefu Kalapuya people who have inhabited the Marys River Valley (Corvallis, Philomath, and Wren) for thousands of years and who continue their cultural traditions. Both the Marys River and its valley were also named Chepenefu, which refers to the place where elderberry are gathered.

David Harrelson, Tribal Cultural Heritage Officer of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, will join us for the first lecture in the series: The Kalapuya Then and Now. David is a tribal member of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and a descendent of the Kalapuya who lived in the mid-Willamette Valley.

Save the date for other lectures in this series including November 8 (Kalapuya Archaeology: Cultural Record of the Willamette Valley before 1850 with Thomas Connolly) and December 13 (Native Space with Natchee Barnd).  All lectures are at 7:00 pm at the Majestic Theater in Corvallis with the doors opening at 6:00 pm.
