Musical horizons opened Thursday at Hood River Middle School auditorium, with a visit by the N'chi Wanapum Canoe Family from the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Tribe. Jared Little Eagle, 1, plays his drum while and Jasmine Lopez, left, and Alexia Edwards sing during the song and dance performance for about 400 students, including all eighth graders and fourth-grade classes from Westside and May Street Elementary Schools. Many students got to learn native dances as part of the program. The N'chi Wanapum visit was paid for by a grant from “Gifts from Our Ancestors: The Celilo Arts Education Program”, part of the ongoing multi-cultural Confluence Project.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
