Celilo Falls Education Fund Mission


Celilo Falls Education Fund (CFEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for the natural rights of NChi’Wana (the Columbia River) and its indigenous cultures and ecosystems, beginning with Celilo Falls. CFEF advances evolution of the region’s dominant economy and culture away from conquest and exploitation of NChi’Wana toward cooperation and ecological integrity. CFEF is committed to promoting restoration of Celilo Falls as an essential step toward recognizing NChi’Wana’s natural rights and transforming the region’s dominant economy and culture. Key points in this vision include: the revitalization of her waters, recovery of native fisheries and the full restoration of indigenous harvest sites of the Mid-Columbia. To achieve this mission we will:

  • Sponsor and participate in events empowering dialogue between diverse stakeholders;
  • Build educational media and curricula; and
  • Foster interdisciplinary studies of economic, ecological, social and legal opportunities to realize this vision of a free NChi’Wana.
