Reclaiming and Sharing Cultural Knowledge
Join artist and weaver Greg Archuleta, of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, as he shares how tribal resilience is cultivated through cultural education. Through a lecture and demonstration, Archuleta will show how reclaiming and sharing cultural knowledge, like seed keeping, is central to creating community. Archuleta started the Grand Ronde Lifeways program in 2005 to share traditional knowledge about ancestral foods, the cultural arts, crafts, and ecology.
Greg Archuleta is Clackamas Chinook, Santiam Kalapuya, and Shasta, and a member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. He teaches about the culture and history of the Tribes of Western Oregon, including ethnobotany, carving, cedar hat making, Native art design, and basketry.
This program is a collaboration with the Arts Council of Lake Oswego. ACLO works to ensure the arts are an integral part of life in our community now and into the future with the purpose of placement and preservation of public art in Lake Oswego, providing access to art exhibitions for residents and visitors, and advance the lifelong learning about the arts through educational programs and docent tours. www.artscouncillo.org
