Restoring Ti'lomikh: Oregon's Original "Statue of Liberty"

 Ti'lomikh Falls was a large Takelma Indian village and the site of the Salmon Ceremony, the largest Native American gathering in Southern Oregon. The Gold Hill Whitewater Center is working with Grandma Agnes Baker Pilgrm, the oldest living Takelma, and the City of Gold Hill to develop a First Nations Monument and to create a statewide First Nations Day.

Now funded by the state and the Oregon Community Foundation, the whitewater design process began in Sept 2015 with Olympic Gold Medalist Oliver Fix, "King of the Rogue" Covey Baack, and Olympic slalom course designers Rick McLaughlin and John Anderson. Now we have the first set of designs and are working through the permitting process.

Get Involved

We need help this summer with the King of the Rogue, implementing Phase 1 of our Riparian Trails Plan (along the parking lot), and measuring the water velocities in Mugger's Alley to make sure our whitewater features improve fish passage. Also we're helping to build a First Nations monument to help Grandma Aggie with her drive to make the 2nd Monday in October the official First Nations Day in Oregon. To help, email Steve@goldhillwhitewater.org.
