GREEN FEATHERS - A Story of Native American Logging
The Green Feathers Production Team is committed to sharing the heartbeat of a story that is seldom heard, yet speaks to the history of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. It is a story of Native American logging.
We will examine the vital role Native Americans played in the success of the logging industry. We will explore how tribes and bands of Native People were, because of the ongoing conflicts with white settlers, encouraged to sign treaties which led to their removal from coveted lands and placed on reservations. We will look at how they coped…a people whose ancestors had lived life according to their own times and seasons for thousands of years and then were thrust into a vastly different life.
