Celebrate spring break by visiting the Oregon Historical Society, 1200 S.W. Park Ave., Portland, for free from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 30. Family-friendly activities include live presentations from Native storytellers, a “Tell Your Family Story” craft from noon to 4 p.m. and activity pages to explore the museum’s main exhibit, “Experience Oregon.”
Native American culture is rich in oral traditions that pass along customs, rituals, and legends through vivid narratives often told by tribal elders to younger generations. The Oregon Historical Society welcomes Wilson Wewa at 11 a.m. and Ed Edmo at 1 p.m. for two presentations about Native traditions and history.
Current exhibitions on view during spring break include OHS’s permanent exhibitions Experience Oregon and History Hub as well as Our Unfinished Past: The Oregon Historical Society at 125, on view through Dec. 17.
