David-Paul Hedberg & Joshua Ross | Native American Resistors: Wilson Charley & David Sohappy, Sr.
Written by Joshua Justice on January 8, 2016
We are joined by two Portland State University master’s students of history who are researching two of the Native American leaders: Wilson Charley and David Sohappy, Sr. In the 1950s Charley fought the construction of The Dalles Dam which submerged Celilo Falls. In the 1980s, Sohappy and his son were imprisoned for defying restrictions upon their fishing rights on the Columbia River.
