Cultural Connections: Chetco Indian Memorial Project Raffle

Cultural Connections’ host Dane Tippman is joined once again by Milo Mann and Karen Crump of the Chetco Indian Memorial Project. The goal of this project is to design and construct a historical marker to commemorate the history of the Chetco Indian people. In 2009 the group secured an almost one-half acre plot of land at the Port of Brookings Harbor dedicated in perpetuity to the memorial. This donated property sits directly atop the remains of a Chetco Indian Village site, located near the mouth of the Chetco River.

All proceeds go to support the construction of a bronze statue of Lucy Dick, who is regarded as the last known full-blooded Chetco woman to live in the Chetco valley!

Angela Ewing announces the premier show of our new series Cultural Cuisine. In this first episode her co-host Judith Lidgus talks with Lauren Spector about Jewish cuisine, customs, and practice.

Every cuisine tells a story. Jewish food tells the story of an uprooted, migrating people and their vanished worlds. It lives in people’s minds and has been kept alive because of what it evokes and represents.

Ewing’s Doings – Out and About: The Fascinating History of Lakeside, Oregon

Lakeside Main Street, 1940

Lakeside Main Street in 1940. Roy Currier was an entrepreneur who had a connection with the Hollywood crowd. He built steam heated cabins in Lakeside (shown on the left of this picture) that still remained for several years for wealthy travelers after Roy Currier returned to Los Angeles in 1935. Only one cabin remains to show that Currier’s Village ever existed.

Ewing’s Doing’s host Angela Ewing has been exploring the coastal towns of Southern Oregon for many years. In her travels she has discovered secrets that have been hidden by layers of time in some out-of-the-way places. One of them is Lakeside, a tiny community so easily missed when you travel up the coast from Curry County to Winchester Bay and Reedsport.

But it’s there, a small village, if you will. It can hardly be called a city, but it has a fascinating history that she unearthed years ago when she was a contributing writer for Oregon Coast Magazine.

Community Organizer: Angela Glore and the Oregon Food Bank FEAST

FEAST Flyer

FEAST Flyer – click to enlarge

Brookings-Harbor community organizer Scott Clapson talks with Angela Glore about locally produced food, the Oregon Community Food Bank, and FEAST.

FEAST stands for Food, Education, Agriculture, Solutions Together. FEAST is a community organizing process that allows participants to engage in an informed and facilitated discussion about food, education, and agriculture in their community and begin to work toward solutions together to help build a healthier, more equitable, and more resilient local food system.

When a community comes together to discuss how it can build a healthier, more sustainable food system, amazing things happen. Relationships with local growers flourish. Backyard gardens and new farmers markets sprout. And neighbors learn that, by working together, they can create a stronger local food system that takes advantage of the resources within their community.

This event will be facilitated by staff from the Oregon Food Bank.

Saturday March 28
9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church
401 Fir Street
Brookings, Oregon 97415

A local meal will be provided.

RSVP by March 23rd
