Confluence

Published: June 1, 2009, Author: JayTaber

Later this month, I’ll be visiting Sacajawea State Park, at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers in Washington state, to see the memorial designed by Maya Lin and Native Americans as part of the Confluence Project to commemorate the Lewis and Clark Voyage of Discovery. One of the tribes participating in the project was the Cayuse, who were noted warriors, horsemen, and nomads, traveling annually from Oregon’s Blue Mountains over the Rockies to hunt buffalo.

Chief George Manuel Memorial Indigenous Library
