Items by and about Oregon Humanities.
These letter-pressed notebooks fit nicely in your handbag or back pocket so you can easily whip them out at a moment’s notice, whether to note the opening lines of your latest manifesto, or an overheard remark on the bus, or just “Don’t forget the milk!” The front cover reads “O. Hm,” and the back “Oregon Humanities” and “Get together, share ideas, listen, think, grow.” Available in three colors (individually or as a set), these 5½” × 3½” journals make great gifts. Plus, each comes with a little surprise tucked in the trademark Moleskine back pocket.
Admit it: you can never have enough t-shirts. Whether you’re a daily wearer (under a button-down, over a long-sleeve, to bed, to work, to play) or an only-on-the-weekends-while-doing-chores wearer, you need these for your collection. Made by American Apparel, these tees, imprinted with “O. Hm.” on the front, come in two colors and fits: a luscious chocolate brown in a 100 percent cotton, traditional slim fit and a beguiling dark heather blue in a poly-cotton blend that makes for a looser but amazingly flattering fit. Available in limited quantities and sizes (because no one who’s seen them can just purchase one).
Originally published and 1991, The First Oregonians: Second Edition is revised and expanded for a new generation of Oregonians. It provides a comprehensive view of Oregon’s native peoples from the past to the present. In this remarkable volume, Oregon Indians tell their own stories, with more than half of the book’s chapters written by members of Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes. Using oral histories and personal recollections, these chapters vividly depict not only a history of decimation and decline, but also a contemporary view of cultural revitalization, renewal, and continuity.
