Location: Idaho, Oregon Length: 15 min
For thousands of years, Native American people used Hells Canyon and the Snake River as a trading route, a place for hunting, fishing and gathering. This deep chasm separating Oregon and Idaho was also a place where cultures intersected, leaving their marks on the cliff walls, in the ground, and in the many stories passed down through time. Through interviews with tribal elders, scenic footage, images of rock art, and a Native American musical score, this video conveys the value of cultural sites in Hells Canyon from the Native American perspective.
