The Forgotten Story of Japanese Women Who Studied in the United States, 1949-1966

Between 1949 and 1966, at least 4,713 Japanese students studied at American universities. This group included 651 women.

The History of Western Oregon Tribes
The History of Western Oregon Tribes

Native societies in Oregon have seen monumental changes in the last two hundred years. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Oregon’s tribes and bands have witnessed great losses of land to federal government allotment programs; death from European diseases; and the loss of culture and language from assimilation programs at Indian boarding schools. Through all these changes, Native cultures in Oregon have adapted, and now are thriving.


This event is free and open to the public. Accommodations for people with disabilities will be provided if requested in advance by calling 541-346-3056, or email libadmin@uoregon.edu.
