The Greatest Migration @ the UO Longhouse

Derek Kimbol introduces the film and talks about his heritage. 

We had a great crowd last Wednesday in Eugene for the screening of the Greatest Migration at the Many Nations Longhouse on the campus of the University of Oregon.  This event was hosted jointly by the UO Outdoor Program, the Native American Student Union and Save Our Wild Salmon.

Derek Kimbol, one of our interns from the UO, kicked off the event, we watched the film, Bobby from SOS helped lead a really great Q & A session, and later we watched another film: Celilo Falls and the Remaking of the Columbia River. 

Bobby from SOS answers some good questions from the crowd.

This event would not have been possible without Derek, Delia Sanchez, the UO Outdoor Program, and the Native American Student Union for pulling everything together. THANK YOU!

Several cast members from the upcoming play Salmon is Everything came to the event as well.  If you are in Eugene May 20 - June 4, you should definitely check out this play.  SOS will be tabling there as well.

Please stay tuned for more awesome events in Eugene very soon.
