Decolonizing Fort Vancouver
Saturday, March 23 9:15 am - 12:30 pm
This tour will visit Fort Vancouver a National Historic Site that was a headquarters and supply depot during the 19th and early 20th century. The tour will begin on the Hudson's Bay Company waterfront and proceed across the Confluence Project Land Bridge a 40-foot-wide, earth-covered pedestrian bridge, adorned with native plantings, that arches over state Highway 14 and reconnects the land to the Columbia River waterfront. Then we will visit the multicultural village, Fort Vancouver and the newly remodeled Visitor Center. During the tour we will discuss the early history of diversity in the Pacific Northwest and decolonize the narrative to address relevant topics through anthropological, archaeological, and indigenous perspectives.
Participants should wear walking shoes and be prepared for any weather.
