Oregon State University - Cascades students and Leona Ike, an enrolled elder of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, will host a presentation titled “A Walk Through History” on Tuesday that honors Native American Heritage Month by exploring the history of Indigenous peoples in Central Oregon.

The presentation is free and open to the public and will take place at noon in Tykeson Hall, Room 111 on the OSU-Cascades campus.

Ike will explore laws that have shaped regional Tribes’ histories, as well as unwritten rules that have shaped life for Indigenous peoples in the region for millennia.
