This special issue of the Oregon Historical Quarterly, guest edited by Katrine Barber and Andrew H. Fisher, is devoted to gathering knowledge about Celilo Falls, which was drowned by the water that backed up behind The Dalles Dam on March 10, 1957. Before it was inundated, Celilo Falls had been an economic, cultural, and spiritual center for mid–Columbia River Indians and other peoples from throughout the Pacific Northwest for thousands of years. Contributions to the heavily illustrated special issue include writing by tribal elders and scholars from a variety of disciplines, excerpts from oral history interviews, and poetry.
