First exhibited in 2009 at the Oregon Historical Society in Portland,
Oregon Is Indian Country represents a groundbreaking project that brought together all nine federally recognized Oregon Tribes to present information, never-before-assembled in one exhibit, on contemporary indigenous cultures. This rich content is now available for museums and cultural institutions across the state as a traveling exhibit of vibrant banners.
The exhibit is a direct result of the Oregon Tribes Project, a multi-year collaboration between the Oregon Historical Society's former
Folklife Program and Oregon's nine federally recognized Tribes. Tribal members documented their contemporary traditions and worked with Society staff to create a series of heritage resources, including the
Oregon Is Indian Country traveling trunk that is available for educators.
