Underground History: Tribes Of Grand Ronde Open Museum
The people who killed Native Americans and marched the survivors off to reservations had few qualms about taking their cultural artifacts as well. Pieces of tribal history sit in museum displays all over the world.
Now the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in Oregon have their own place to display items from the ancestors, the Chachalu Museum. It is the focus of this month's Underground History, our monthly partnership with the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology (SOULA).
Briece Edwards, who runs the Historic Preservation Office for the tribes, is our guest. Mark Tveskov of SOULA returns from sabbatical to join Chelsea Rose in the studio.
