Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya etc. Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians.
On Labor Day, a windstorm swept across Oregon. A fire of 500 acres Monday afternoon grew to cover 131,000 acres overnight. Several other fires ignited, eventually burning more than a million acres.
As many of us working parents come to grips with being full-time teachers and caregivers to our children, the enormous value of this kind of labor comes into sharp relief.
