From Lake Coeur d Alene to its confluence with the Columbia, the Spokane River travels 111 miles of varied and often spectacular terrain rural, urban, in places wild. The river has been a trading and gathering place for Native peoples for thousands of years.

They bring a keen environmental awareness of resource scarcity, climate change, and cultural survival tied to the river s fate.
