Explore Oregon Podcast: A 'Travel Guide to Oregon Indian Country' – Statesman Journal

In this episode of the Explore Oregon Podcast, outdoors reporting intern Makenzie Elliott looks into the recently published “Travel Guide to Oregon Indian Country.”
The guide, which was created by Travel Oregon in partnership with Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes, highlights events, outdoor activities and other attractions like tribal museums and casinos.
Elliott talks with Travis Hill, the chief operating officer for Umpqua Indian Development Corporation and a contributor to the guide, about the creation of it, what he hopes comes from it and why a guide like this is important to tribal communities. Hill also mentions some outdoor activities and events people can explore around the Umpqua area, which is located in southern Oregon in the Roseburg area.
You can order a copy of the “Travel Guide to Oregon Indian Country” on Travel Oregon’s website, or you can find an online version here.
