Wilbur Slockish - Shoshone Falls

Wilbur Slockish tells a story about visiting Shoshone Falls in Idaho to sit and listen to the sound. The sound reminds him of Celilo Falls, a sound he will never forget.

The following text is a transcription of this video.
“I was on my way to Albuquerque, for a meeting. And I saw this sign, 'Shoshone Falls.' So I went there, and I heard the sound of the water falling, it wasn't as loud as Celilo. And I spread a blanket out and I just laid there listening to it. A park ranger came over and asked me, 'Are you ok?' I said, 'Yeah, I'm ok, I'm just listening to this falls.’ He asked me how old I was. 'Oh, you must be thinking of Celilo. ‘'Yeah.' He said, 'Well, you're lucky, because this is the first year that here has been enough water to flow over those falls instead of being diverted into the power house. So you know, we find places like that to remember. That's a sound I'll never forget.”
