During the trip we will visit:

  • The Museum at Warm Springs, a unique museum that was founded and is operated by the indigenous peoples of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The Museum features artifacts, photographs, and interpretive displays that represent thousands of years of history and tradition.

  • Salmon King Fisheries, a native-owned and operated fishery that sells traditionally-cooked tribally-harvested salmon. Brigette McConville—the founder of the fishery, a cultural educator and anthropologist—will tell us about the fisheries and the significance of salmon for the peoples of the Confederated Tribes among other culturally significant traditions.

After the talk, we will share a meal and taste traditionally smoked salmon at the Salmon KIng Fisheries*.

*Let us know if you have dietary needs and we can arrange a special meal for you.

Useful information:

  • The trip starts at 10AM and ends at Portland around 8-9PM.

  • The ride from Portland to Warm Springs takes about 2.5 to 3 hours one way.

  • Arrive Museum around 1PM; Talk & Discussion with Brigette McConville around 3-4:30PM; Meal around 4:30-6PM; Arrive Portland around 8-9PM

  • The trip includes one meal. Please eat breakfast before the trip and bring snacks & water.

  • This is an especially good opportunity for international exchange Fulbrighters since the Warm Springs reservation is relatively remote and it can be challenging to go on a day-trip there without your own car.
