Un Río, Muchas Voces

One River, Many Voices,  Clark County confluence:

“The Columbia River is the fourth largest river in the continental United States. Seven hundred seventy-one (771) of its 1,243 miles flow through the State of Washington, descending south from the Canadian Rockies and eventually turning westward to create much of the border between Washington and Oregon. For millennia, Native peoples have called its banks home, developing a way of life in sync with the river’s energy, beauty and power. The path of the river represents a confluence of waters, of memory, of languages and ways of life, of human exploration and exploitation, of ecological upheaval, and of change and possibility.”

– Claudia Castro Luna, Washington State Poet Laureate
