Warm Springs

The Warm Springs Reservation is home to almost 4,000 members of the Warm Springs, Wasco and Paiute tribes. Their families have called parts of Oregon home since well before any European settlers arrived. The Warm Springs Reservation stretches from Mt. Hood to the Deschutes River. Today we're sharing photos from two photographers who spent July 15th in Warm Springs.

Oregonians at Work: Outside

July 15th fell on a Monday, so many of our participants set out to capture images of Oregonians at work. In this week's set of photos, we feature some Oregonians who are lucky enough to spend their working days outside.
