This 11-minute documentary short is a collaboration of Tule Films, Confluence, NW Documentary Freshwaters Illustrated, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Filmmaker Woodrow Hunt (Klamath/Modoc, Cherokee) of Tule Films brings us Indigenous stories and perspectives from the Columbia River that illuminate our relationship with a fish that remains a cultural lifeblood to Native people.

Map of Territories from Native Land
There are nine Federally Recognized Tribes of Oregon. The following are links to each tribe's website. There are over 40 additional tribes across multiple states that are recognized as Native American tribes that had traditional and customary tribal boundaries in parts of the state of Oregon or that ceded or reserved lands within the state of Oregon. A full list can be found on the UO's Residence Classification for Members of Oregon Tribes webpage:
Eight UO Libraries librarians contributed content to this guide. The librarians are working in collaboration with the Common Reading Program and library colleagues at other institutions.
Librarians at UO are serving on the Common Reading Selection Committee and the Common Reading Programming Committee. Librarians partner with disciplinary faculty to teach lessons related to the CR in classes at UO, and plan events, exhibits, and create resources that also relate to the CR selection.
Researching in a library or archive can be a traumatic experience for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. In this guide, we have endeavored to highlight indigenous activists in the US and Canada; however, we cannot only focus on the inspiring stories without also including some of the tragic historical events that have decimated native populations on this continent and around the world.
As with last year's CR guide, we capitalized Indigenous on this guide when writing about people and tribes. See also:
