The Fourth Annual Chinese Remembering Conference was held at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston. The event remembered the nearly three dozen Chinese gold miners massacred on the Oregon side of Hells Canyon in 1887. The conference brought together historians and others to talk of the Chinese who once lived and worked in the region during the gold-mining era in the 1800s.
The conference had 129 participants for the lectures on June 23, and 91 for the day-long jet boat trip into Hells Canyon to Chinese Massacre Cove on June 24.
Attendees came from Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, and California, as well as Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. ♦
