Randall Melton, Collection Curator at Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, will be speaking about the foundation and growth of Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, their current plans to update displays and about the growth in economy and influence of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla while reflecting on the effects of historic trauma.

He will also talk about TCI's current temporary exhibit Celilo: Progress vs. Protest, which explores the myriad impacts of the placement of the Dalles Dam and the flooding of Celilo Falls.

Tamástslikt is in an incredibly poignant position to provide another voice and perspective to history and today’s world in general, and we hope you can join us for this presentation and discussion.
