Celilo: Progress Versus Protest

April 07 - July 14

The building of The Dalles Dam on the Columbia River in 1957 and the resulting submersion of Celilo Falls was done under the flag of progress. Biologists, sport and commercial fishermen, congressmen, and citizens opposed and protested the dam. Almost 60 years later, American Indians are protesting yet another “progressive” project, the Dakota Access Pipeline. Is history repeating itself?
