The Friends of Celilo Falls is a new nonprofit corporation dedicated to the recovery and protection of Celilo Falls under the permanent stewardship of the Columbia River Treaty tribes.
The Friends of Celilo Falls does not represent or speak for any entity other than its own membership. We do not speak for or represent the Columbia River Treaty tribes or the people of Celilo Village.
The Columbia River Treaty tribes are the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla, the Nez Perce and the Yakama nation.
We will oppose any threat to Celilo Falls or to Celilo Village, the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in North America.
