Hosted by the Confluence project, the Gifts from Our Ancestors project has successfully engaged over 1,500 student throughout the Columbia Gorge region, bringing in Native artists, craftspeople, and cultural ambassadors to 15 schools and after-school programs in Oregon and Washington.

The Gifts from Our Ancestors exhibit showcases a rotating selection of over 150 individual pieces of student-created art, from ceramic masks and salmon sculptures to stop-motion animations and theatrical costumes. The GOA exhibit will be traveling to three different venues throughout the region this year, including the Maryhill Museum of Art from September 9 through November 15. The opening ceremony is on Sunday, September 16 from 1:00-2:00pm. Free and open to the public with price of museum admission.
