This IS Kalapuyan Land
Presented in collaboration with artist and curator Steph Littlebird (Grand Ronde, Kalapuya, Chinook), This IS Kalapuyan Land was first installed at Five Oaks Museum in 2019. The exhibition was adapted from a problematic 2008 show on the Kalapuyan people put forth by the Washington County Museum. Littlebird corrected the show's original explanatory panels, expanded them with historical input from Western Oregon tribe scholar David G. Lewis, Ph.D., and paired them with contemporary Indigenous artworks created by artists with connections to Kalapuyan land. Currently showing at Pittock Mansion, this fresh installment of the show includes a new collection of Native artworks.
