Recent investigations or explorations into the Historic Oregon newspaper Databases have revealed additional articles. This will happen as the project continues to add many more thousands of pages in the coming years. Sometime in 2014 pages of the Chemawa American will be available. But these articles consistently tell me we are either already extinct or rapidly disappearing. Indian Eliza was the last Kalapuya, or so the newspaper tells me. I found this gem in the Oregonian paper from 1921.
