Although the Indian community of Celilo Village survives to this day as Oregon''s oldest continuously inhabited town, with the construction of The Dalles Dam in 1957, traditional uses of the river were catastrophically interrupted. Most non-Indians celebrated the new generation of hydroelectricity and the easy navigability of the river highway created by the dam, but Indians lost a sustaining center to their lives when Celilo Falls was inundated.Death of Celilo Falls is a story of ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances, as neighboring communities went through tremendous economic, environmental, and cultural change in a brief period. Katrine Barber examines the negotiations and controversies that took place during the planning and construction of the dam and the profound impact the project had on both the Indian community of Celilo Village and the non-Indian town of The Dalles, intertwined with local concerns that affected the entire American West: treaty rights, federal Indian policy, environmental transformation of rivers, and the idea of progress.Katrine Barber is assistant professor of history at Portland State University and an associate at the Center for Columbia River History.Creatively conceived and carefully argued, Barber''s study provides important insights to a story that, while set in the Pacific Northwest on the Columbia River, has much larger relevance to the American West as a whole and to modern U.S. social history, Cold War historiography, federal Indian policy in the mid-twentieth century, and recent Native American history. - Peter Boag, author of Environment and Experience: Settlement Culture in Nineteenth-Century Oregon
