The ratified treaties series, just completed today (1/17/2018), was inspired by a request from Dean Rhodes, Media Director at Grand Ronde, for me to tape a podcast about the Willamette Valley Treaty, as its anniversary is coming up soon. I figured, I should write a post about each treaty, and include the treaties so people can easily find them.
Dean is a great newspaper manager and has allowed me to place stories and editorials into the paper over the years. He has been patient, as I am not a journalist and my writing style can be a bit dry. So thanks Dean for all you have done.
I hope Grand Ronde does more of these Podcasts and perhaps one for each of the important dates in tribal history. I compiled a good list of these dates in an essay from about a year ago.
