Celebrating The Region's Blessings: Hathkapasuta

Public Domain

We can take our surroundings for granted, so it's good every so often to step back and gaze in appreciation.

That's the basic idea behind theHathkapasuta River Celebration, coming to the Illinois Valley (Near Cave Junction) this weekend. 

It gives visitors a chance to celebrate the rivers and forests that are such critical parts of our region. 

Tim  Leyba and Suzanne Vautier of CEEN, the Cultural and Ecological Enhancement Network, are organizers for the event.  They stop buy to talk about the history and present of Hathkapasuta.
