Winter Storytelling: Indigenous Stories of Place

Spring Creek Project is honored to be partnering once again on the annual Champinefu Lecture Series. "Champinefu" is the Kalapuya name for the lower Marys River Valley area now called Corvallis and Philomath in Benton County, Oregon. Each year, topics and speakers are chosen by the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde.

For the final event of this year’s three-part series, join members of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and their invited guests in person for an evening of storytelling in many forms. Stories shared will focus on place and life in Western Oregon. They will include family stories, Ikanum (creation stories), contemporary stories, and readings. 

This event is free and open to everyone. No tickets required. First come, first seated.

Content for the Champinefu Lecture Series is planned and presented in partnership with the Grand Ronde Cultural Resources Department and event logistics are organized by the Marys Peak Group of the Sierra Club. Additional partners include the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and OSU’s School of Language, Culture & Society.
