Kalapuya Archaeology: Cultural Record of the Willamette Valley before 1850

Chepenefu Lecture Series

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:00 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 and who continue their cultural traditions. Dr. Thomas Connolly will give the second lecture in the series: "Kalapuya Archaeology: Cultural Record of the Willamette Valley before 1850." 

Dr. Thomas Connolly is the director of archaeological research at the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History and author of Oregon Archaeology. Tom presents the state of the art understanding of the Kalapuya as discovered through archaeological research. 

Spring Creek Project is a proud co-sponsor of the Chepenefu Lecture Series with the Marys Peak Group of the Sierra Club. Both the Marys River and its valley were also named Chepenefu, which refers to the place where elderberry are gathered.

Save the date for the last lecture in the series on 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.
