This year, the Willamette river fest welcomes Kunu Bearchum and Wisdom of Elders back to perform live on August 28th at the EWEB plaza in Eugene. This concert will feature Indigenous storytelling, traditional and current songs, music, and dance starting at noon. Following, the Eugene Symphony will close out this concert from 2-4 pm, with Indigenous performers and audience members conducting the symphony. Inadvertently, the pairing of these arts symbolizes an exchange of hope and healing by providing space for Native voices to lead, direct and influence positive change within the Indigenous-settler relationship. This is a FREE event, inclusive of all ages.
