This IS Kalapuyan Land

Presented by Five Oaks Museum and City of Eugene Cultural Services

“We have always been here, we will always be here.” - Steph Littlebird Fogel


In partnership with Five Oaks Museum, the City of Eugene is honored to present “This IS Kalapuyan Land” at the new Farmers Market Pavilion and Plaza. This exhibit opened in 2019 as a physical installation at Portland’s Five Oaks Museum by Guest Curator Steph Littlebird Fogel (Grand Ronde, Kalapuya) and became an online exhibition in 2020. Fogel annotated panels from the museum’s outdated and problematic exhibit on Kalapuyan people, curated contemporary Native artwork into the exhibition and added historical content from Dr. David G. Lewis, who is a preeminent scholar on Western Oregon Tribes.


“This IS Kalapuyan Land” acts as both a museum exhibition title and land acknowledgement. It is also a declaration of perpetual stewardship by the Kalpuyan people. As you look at the panels, see where the changes have been made. They invite critical thinking around representation of Indigenous history and identity by non-Indigenous institutions.
