A group of about 135 supporters, including representatives of Chinese American communities in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and members of the Chinese Massacre Memorial Committee, attended the dedication for the Chinese Massacre Cove memorial on June 22. Local representative Bettie Luke was in attendance, along with Marcus Lee of Oregon’s Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA). There was also participation from the Nez Perce tribe in Idaho. The memorial commemorates the nearly 34 Chinese gold miners massacred at the cove in 1887.
