On Saturday, September 30, 2017, from 1 pm to 3 pm, at the Fort Vancouver Visitor Center, author and historian Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will discuss her recent book, The Valley of the Kings: Rehabilitation of the People of the Columbia River and Pacific Rim through Ceremonialism. Following the presentation at 1 pm, Landrum will sign copies of her book, which will be available for sale at the Friends of Fort Vancouver book store in the Visitor Center. This event is hosted by the Friends of Fort Vancouver, in partnership with Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
Dr. Landrum’s work explores the painful outcomes of the colonization process in respect to drugs and alcohol use among Pacific Northwest tribes and how it impacts individuals and communities: spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, and socially over time. Dr. Landrum’s work also examines the survival of the individual, traditions and cultures, assimilation “norms” versus traditions, and the Native traditions and ceremonies in place to remedy ongoing addiction issues.
Dr. Landrum teaches history and Indigenous Nations Studies/United States History at Portland State University and Clark College in Vancouver. She holds a PhD in American Indian History from Oklahoma State University.
