Tamkaliks Celebration

Tamkaliks Celebration

"It is time once again to let the land hear the familiar sounds that have been developed over thousands of years here in the land of winding waters, the rhythm of the drum beat, the songs, the language, the prayers, the people, and all creation joined to co- exist and respect mother earth and this law of the land. Our elders, whose bones remain in this beautiful land, would be proud that everyone here has a genuine concern to maintain the Nee- Me-Poo (We The People, Nez Perce) culture. It has fallen upon the shoulders of this generation to capture the history and through cultural understanding, respect this land that we live in. We all came together at this historical location to extend our concerns for a better world by maintaining for future generations the knowledge that made this land a wonderful place to live. Whatever we accomplish in these developmental years will be appreciated by many peoples across the nation and around the world. Thank you for your attendance, support, and kindness." - Taz E. E.

Juniper Jam Music Festival

Juniper Jam Music Festival

Once upon a time in a high valley nestled in the remote wilds of Eastern Oregon there began a small one-day music festival. Songwriters and musicians gathered from lands far and near to share their talents with others, under the shadow of eagle`s wings and mountain peaks. Scattered throughout this lovely little valley, lining gravel roads and curving highways, the lowly juniper tree is a sentinel - humbly welcoming sojurners out of the canyons carved by the winding waters of the Wallowas into the lush green fields and rolling prairie land that we call home.

Hell`s Canyon Mule Days

Hell`s Canyon Mule Days

In the Spring of 1981, local ranchers and packers met with representatives of the Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce and USDA Forest Service to explore the idea of putting together a new county event. As a result, the mule - tough, intelligent, individualistic, often maligned, but the mainstay of the many packers and outfitters working in Wallowa County - was elevated to center stage for the first annual Hells Canyon Mule Days celebration on September 19 - 20, 1981. Hells Canyon was an appropriate title because that area owes most of its early settlement and development to the mule which predominantly served as a major means of transportation to gain access to this rugged region of the county. Given the well-known independence of Mule Days’ long-eared star, the entertaining, action-packed event has met its initial goal - both mule skinners and spectators a like can be part of this family oriented mule show, with events and games for all ages.
