Memorializing History

On this episode of the Confluence Story Gathering Podcast we dive into the current cultural discussion on monuments and who tells the stories behind monuments, to ask how do we memorialize our history today? Three Indigenous women who live in the Pacific Northwest joined us for this discussion, Bobbie Conner, Deana Dartt, and Emily Washines. About the Speakers: Bobbie Conner is an enrolled member at the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla and director of Tamástslikt Cultural Institute on the Umatilla Reservation. Deana Dartt is Coastal Chumash and Mestiza--descending from the Indigenous peoples of California--and has worked as a curator at several museums. Emily Washines is an enrolled Yakama tribal member and board member of the Museum of Culture and the Environment.
