The First Oregonians

The First Oregonians is a uniquely Oregon text, an edited volume of 17 chapters involving 18 authors. It tells the unique stories of Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes from their perspective. The first edition stemmed from a three-year heritage recovery project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, that focused on the native peoples of Oregon. The second edition, updated for the 21st century with support from the Oregon Council for the Humanities, shines a light on some important changes in Indian Country between the two editions.

    As a member of one of oregons nine tribes, I was supet excited to get this book. I of course devoured the section on my tribe and then finished off the rest in less than a weekend. It was full of beautiful stories and history told by members of the tribes or historians. Very well done.

    An amazing wealth of knowledge and stories about Oregon Native Americans. I enjoy the fact that it’s written in part by actual Natives.

    What a beautiful book to add to our home library. This book is a wealth of information and gives a much needed voice in a area of history our public schools fail to teach.
