CELILO FALLS

THOUSANDS TURNED OUT OVER THE WEEKEND TO MOURN THE LOSS OF CELILO FALLS, OBLITERATED EXACTLY 50 YEARS AGO BY THE DALLES DAM.
THE COMMEMORATION INCLUDED A SALMON FEAST IN THE CELILO VILLAGE LONG HOUSE; AND STORIES, PRAYERS AND PHOTOS THAT RECALLED A WAY OF LIFE THAT HAD FLOURISHED FOR OVER TEN THOUSAND YEARS.
