About the event

Please note: In general our AIA talks are on the third Thursday of the month, but are on the fourth Thursday for September 2023

Warren Seyler’s talk will review what it was like for the Spokane ancestors when they lived as a semi-nomadic river people upon the Plateau. Oral traditional stories will be shared telling how this land was formed and how the first Spokane arrived at the location known today as the Spokane Falls. Seyler will delve into the life of the Spokane ancestors which was filled with song, ceremony and tradition built and based upon what the creator had instructed. Seyler will speak about the many attempts made by the Federal and State governments to rid the land and society of the tribal people living within the American landscape and will discuss the eras of war, reservation, boarding school, allotment, relocation, and termination. Seyler will end his talk with how the tribe has endured, overcome, and risen to what it is today.
