Celilo Falls Video

In "Robbing the Cuckoo's Nest", I mentioned the Celilo Falls on the Columbia River. The News Magazine of the Screen clip below is from 1956 and there is a segment on the Celilo Falls at 6:07.

Click here to see Andrew Fletcher's 6-minute student documentary Lost Echoes of Celilo Falls. Fletcher's choice of Enigma's "Return to Innocence" for the soundtrack is kind of bizarre. You'd think he might want to choose an American Indian song instead of one by a German group using a Led Zeppelin drum beat and music "stolen" from aboriginal Taiwanese singers. The video includes some footage from the half-hour long Celilo Falls and the Remaking of the Columbia River.
