Native Wisdom - The Peoples of Eastern Oregon

Synopsis: Indigenous scientists and elders from several Oregon interior tribes, including the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla Reservation, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, and Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde share observations of their changing environment, natural resource issues, and the beauty of their tribes’ traditional arts, music and storytelling. Their unique perspectives and knowledge is more important now than ever. The Peoples of Eastern Oregon features gifted tribal elders and indigenous scientists and their observations of ecosystems on their reservation and ceded lands where they hunt, fish and gather traditional First Foods and medicines. The film shows how traditional ecological knowledge is now influencing decisions by natural resource managers in Oregon on wildlife and resource management, and how Oregon Tribes are leading the way for the nation in habitat and species restoration.
