Library event focuses on Native Americans
Tracy J. Prince, an instructor at Portland State University, will discuss Native Americans and their role in Portland's early history in a free workshop from 3:45-4:45 on Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Rockwood Library.
The first written histories of the city never mentioned that Portland's recently arrived white residents were outnumbered three to one by the Native Americans who lived along the Willamette River at the foot of Jefferson Street and other sites around Portland.
Prince recently uncovered this completely neglected part of Portland's history, and in this presentation, she will share rare photos and early stories about Native Americans in Portland.
The Rockwood Library is at 17917 S.E. Stark St. Call 503-988-5123 for more information
