“The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon includes over 30 tribes and bands from western Oregon, northern California, and southwest Washington. Since time immemorial tribal people have relied on these traditional landscapes for their livelihood. The fish and game were plentiful and what the lands didn’t provide, they acquired by trade.
This way of life changed with western expansion. Ratified and unratified treaties between the Tribes and the United States Government from 1853 through 1855 resulted in the forced removal of tribal members from their ancestral homelands. Despite this removal, tribal members maintained their connection to their homelands and areas such as Willamette Falls and Table Rocks.”
These Tribes are:
“Takelma, Upper Takelma, Latgawa, Shasta, Applegate, Galice, Cow Creek Band of Umpqua, Quilsieton Band of the Chasta, Nahelta Band of the Chasta, Cownantico Band of the Scotons, Sacheriton Band of the Scotons, Naalye Band of the Scotons, Upper Umpqua, Yoncalla, Tualatin, Yamhill, Luckiamute, Mary’s River, Muddy River, Long Tom, Calapooia, Winnefelly, Mohawk, Tekopa, Chafan, Santiam, Pudding River, Northern Molalla, Clackamas, Cascades, Clowwewalla, Multnomah, Cathlamet, Skilloot, Southern Molalla.”
