The First Oregonians
The First Oregonians is a uniquely Oregon text, an edited volume of 17 chapters involving 18 authors. It tells the unique stories of Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes from their perspective. The first edition stemmed from a three-year heritage recovery project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, that focused on the native peoples of Oregon. The second edition, updated for the 21st century with support from the Oregon Council for the Humanities, shines a light on some important changes in Indian Country between the two editions.
