What can Coyote's experience and other traditional ecological knowledge teach us about how to live well with our waters? Presenter Kathleen George, who was awarded the Columbia River Hero Award for her work to protect the health of tribal people who eat fish from Oregon rivers, will help us think through a new path forward.
This talk is part of the fifth 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.
This year's Champinefu Lecture Series is co-sponsored by OSU's Spring Creek Project, Marys Peak Group of the Sierra Club, Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.
