Is it possible that the program could be held on Nov. 13th, one week earlier, to coincide with the Ocian In View weekend events? Just a thought.

In Their Footsteps
Native American Women; Three Who Changed History
Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to
announce the next installment of its In Their Footsteps free speakers
series. This program is Native American Women; Three Who Changed History
by Gloria Stiger Linkey on Sunday, November 20, at 1:00 p.m. in the Netul
River Room of the Fort Clatsop visitor center.
Gloria Linkey is from Seaside, Oregon and is the secretary-treasurer of
the Pacific Northwest Living Historians, a board member of the Knappton
Cove Heritage Area, and past president of the Seaside Museum & Historical
Society. She loves history, and lives and works within walking distance
of The Salt Works, which inspired Gloria to research and develop several
presentations about the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
This year, Gloria authored a book Native American Women; Three Who Changed
History which introduces the reader to three historical women that Gloria
has come to admire: Sacagawea, Wetxuiss, and Marie Dorion. They were
well-travelled American Indians, contemporary to each other, and
courageously involved in major episodes of Pacific Northwest history about
200 years ago. Come learn about these three amazing lives.
Gloria’s book is available at the Lewis & Clark National Park Association
bookstore in the Fort Clatsop visitor center. There will be a
book-signing at this bookstore following her presentation.
This third Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park
Association and the National Park Service. These programs are held in the
Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
