Reserve your ticket today
Until a few decades ago, it was U.S. federal policy to take children away
from Native American families and place them in boarding schools. These
schools punished students for any expression of their Native cultures or

One of the earliest such boarding schools opened in Forest Grove in 1880
and operated there until 1885. Its descendant, Chemawa Indian School, is
still open today in Salem. The school has had profound and lasting effects
on the tribes of the Pacific Northwest. This talk will include images and
maps of the school, and will speak on the forces that drove its founding.
It will also describe the daily life of students and how we can confront
the boarding school systems legacy of trauma.

Ticket proceeds will support the creation of an after-school art program
for students at Chemawa Indian School.

Eva Guggemos is the Archivist and an Associate Professor at Pacific
University in Oregon. Previously, she was the Research Services Librarian
at Yale Universitys Rare Book Library. She has an M.A. in History from Yale
University, a Master of Library Science from Simmons University, and a B.A.
from the University of Kansas. At Pacific, she has spearheaded a project to
digitize all the university's records related to the Forest Grove Indian
School, which later became Chemawa Indian School in Salem. Her current
project is a book on the Forest Grove Indian School.
