Moving Meacham Creek

Clip: Season 27 Episode 2708 | 7m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

A massive restoration project is underway in Northeast Oregon, where a creek is not only being restored but literally moved back to its original location prior to 1855. Salmon are at risk, but so too is an entire tribe’s way of life. We explore the connection between Meacham Creek and the ‘First Foods’ of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation.
