YACHATS — History comes alive through the stories and artifacts shared by Robert Kentta, cultural educator for the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz. Kentta will present a historical and cultural program at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center on March 23, beginning at 2 p.m., as part of the newly initiated Chats by the Sea winter series program.
“We are very excited to have Robert kick off our series of Chats by the Sea,” said David Thompson, interpretive specialist for the Central Coast Ranger District, ODNRA of the Siuslaw National Forest. “He is wonderful speaker with a wealth of knowledge about our local area and the history of his people’s culture.”
Kentta has been the tribe’s cultural resources director since 1994, and an elected member of the tribal council for the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians for the last eight years. He has had a long-term interest in his own people’s culture, with formal education in American Indian Arts and museum studies.
