Oregon's Native American Art - "Uniquely Oregon" w/optional Steak Tacos

What differentiates Native American art in Oregon from other indigenous art throughout the Pacific Northwest, and what might this tell us about our state’s identity?

Discover the history, culture, values and aspirations encoded within tribal art, in “Uniquely Oregon: The Native American Art of Oregon,” on Saturday, October 20th at 1 p.m. at the Museum of the Oregon Territory.

Tracy Prince has taught university classes on Native American art and literature for two decades. A Portland State University scholar-in-residence, this inspiring, free slideshow and dialogue reflect her intensive study.  Ms. Prince researches traditions that have survived the suppression of Native identity and customs.

Conversation Projects are sponsored by Oregon Humanities, to connect Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. Each conversation is sparked by powerful images and challenging concepts, and then facilitated by humanities scholars trained to encourage thoughtful discussion, without advocating a particular political agenda.


Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust.

This Clackamas County Historical Society event includes free museum admission. The Museum of the Oregon Territory overlooks Willamette Falls, at 211 Tumwater Drive, off Hwy 99 in Oregon City. Call [masked] for more information, or visit www.clackamashistory.org.

OK; now for the STEAK TACOS. Just a couple of blocks away are  BAR NONE the biggest and the greatest $1.90 Steak Tacos (Carne Asada) on the Planet, at Super Tortas. It's on 7th Street (which becomes Mollalla) and Washington.  Chicken available too. If you hesitate, your host will buy your first one for free.  After that, it will cost you, and you will be hooked POR VIDA!

Call Roxandra at[masked] if you have any questions.  Thanks for supporting this great speaker and being a life-long learner and adventurer.

    Very enjoyable. It was nice to be at a presentation where people were encouraged to chime in rather than "please hold questions until the end".

    Tacos are after the program. I suspect we will want to tour the musuem for a minute after the Native American Art Conversation Ends, and caravan a couple short blocks to Super Tortas (aka the holy shrine of cheap but healthy Mexican cuisine). I'ts hard to say exactly what time the program ends, as it is a Conversation. It will probably run from 1-2 pm. 2:30 is a good time to head for Tacos. The service at Super Tortas is very friendly and very quick at the counter, ...not a long lunch. :) I will have maps printed on how to jog over from the Museum to Super Tortas.

    If anyone needs a ride from PDX, I'm driving from near Laurelhurst Park. Just $5 for gas.

    Hello! Oregon City is just a few miles south of PDX, but it's like a scenic weekend getaway from the city. The event is on the second floor of the museum. Admission is free. I'll be there at noon, so just check in with me when you arrive and we will all get great seats. Bring any Pac NW Native American Art you may have questions about.

    You are welcome to tour the exhibits of Native American Artifacts before or after the presentation. It's a really scenic spot for exploring the Willamette Falls, too! Next door is the StillHouse Pub, and you can walk over the quaint Oregon City Bridge which was just rededicated, as well. Coffee and light snacks will be served. All ages.
