OAKRIDGE, Oregon (October 4, 2016) -- Last weekend marked the first year of the Molalla Ancestral Run. On Saturday October 1st, members of the Chakgeenkni-Tufti band of Molalla Indians called for ceremony in response to the recent proposal to turn our ancient village site in to a gravel mine in Oakridge, Oregon.

During times of great burden it has been a tradition of our people to join together in ceremony and prayer. We are retracing an ancient route of our ancestors and honoring them in the process.

Rather than focus on negativity, we have chosen to rejoice in our ancestry and shared history in Oakridge as tribal people and settlers. We have chosen to uplift, support and share with each other during this time.
