A collection of interview excerpts with Indigenous elders and leaders from along the Columbia River system. The Confluence oral history collection is housed at WSU's Plateau People's Portal, an archive uniquely designed to hold tribal materials through Washington State University by using the innovative Murkutu software. The collection features the stories of Indigenous elders and leaders, told in their own voices, as a way to explore the interconnectedness of people and places of the Columbia River system. These excerpts cover topics such as Celilo Falls, tribal sovereignty and traditional lifeways. At the moment, there are 65 excerpts; however this number will continue to grow as we pull more from the interviews and conduct future interviews.
