      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.
