​​March ​is Women's ​​​History Month

​March is Women's History Month. In collaboration with WAHONE (We Are Here Native Oregon Employees) resource group, we are highlighting historic American Indian women who have impacted Tribes and Tribal communities in Oregon and throughout the Northwest. The historical significance of Native women is woven throughout many Tribes and Native culture across Indian Country. As we highlight these four women, we encourage you to research more historic Native women in observance of this month.
