News Release
Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge Second Sunday Series at CCHM - 11/08/18

Clark County Historical Museum is pleased to announce that on November 11, 2018 at 1:00 pm, we will co-host the Friends of Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge Second Sunday Series. This educational program explores Chinookan culture, archaeology, and natural history through lectures, hikes, and hands-on family activities.

Guest Speaker David G. Lewis, PhD will present his talk “Colonial Mythologies of the Indians Wars In Oregon.”

From Dr. Lewis-

The northwest has a history of ‘Indian Wars’ but the majority of the wars were actually created by American settlers seeking to remove people from the land in a variety of ways. Histories of Native peoples in the colonization era will be discussed, including their campaigns to drive invaders from their lands. These were military campaigns to preserve and save hundreds of cultures in the Oregon territory from invading usurpers on their lands. The falsehoods as written into northwest histories will be addressed as well as the experiences of the Native peoples as they sought to survive colonization of their homelands.

We hope you will join us at 1:00 pm for this captivating talk and for the City Inspired Naturalist Walk that will follow at 3:00 pm.
