Contact: Willan Yaotekpatl Cervantes- 503-798-6944


The Aztec Dance, “Danza Azteca”, is one of the most basic manifestations of the artistic and cultural spirit of the native people of Mexico. It is a mixture of thousands of years of history of both the agrarian and militaristic ethnic groups of the area, and the integration of pre-columbian and Christian rituals as evolved over the centuries.

The Dance represents the eternal search of man for cosmic harmony and integration, both of his body and his spirit, and all the chants of Aztec Dance ritual refer to this essential process.

This weekly practice is open and free for anyone to join. All ages are welcome! Children under 13 must be accompanied by adults. You are also welcome to come and just watch. Anyone coming to observe or try it out for the first time is asked to stay for the entire practice, so as not to disrupt the practice with coming and going.


La Danza Azteca es una clásica manifestación del espíritu artístico y cultural de los pueblos indígenas de México. Es una mezcla de miles de años de historia de etnias agrarias así como militaristas del área, y de la integración de rituales precolombinos y cristianos que fueron evolucionando al pasar los siglos.

La danza representa la búsqueda eterna del hombre por armonía cósmica y la integración tanto de su cuerpo como de su alma; todos los cantos del ritual de la danza azteca se refieren a este proceso esencial. 

Esta práctica semanal es ofrecida de manera gratuita y abierta al público. Gente de todas las edades es bienvenida! Los niños menores de 13 años deben ser acompañados por un adulto. También es bienvenido si gusta venir simplemente para ver. A todos los que vengan a participar o a presenciar la danza, se les pedirá que se queden hasta el final, para no distraer de la práctica con el salir y venir.

WHERE: Grand Lobby 
WHEN: Wednesday, November 6; 7pm

Instituto de Cultura Oregoniana (ICO) will introduce the study: Los orígenes hispanos de Oregón (The Hispanic Origins of Oregon) 


What the session will highlight:

• It documents two existing theories of the origin of the name Oregon (oregano and ears), and brings forward a new one, that of “Magdalena de Orejón”. 

• It brings forward new documentation sources for future historical and ethnographic studies of the United States of America. 

• It shows the links between different European colonialism practices that are usually studied separate of each other, providing a global and inclusive perspective of the old history of the Pacific coast of North America. 

• It puts in perspective 250 years of little-known history of the United States’ northwest. 

• It gives the Hispanic population a cultural history of autochthonous roots in the American northwest dating back to pre-USA colonization and not interrupted since them.

• Señala vínculos entre los colonialismos europeos que comúnmente se estudian separados o de forma diferente, procurando una perspectiva incluyente y global de la historia antigua de la costa pacífico de Norteamérica, 

• Dimensiona más de 250 años de historia poco conocida del noroeste de EEUU. 

• Dota a la población hispana de una historia cultural de raíces autóctonas en el noroeste americano, previas a la colonización estadounidense y no interrumpida desde entonces.

Join the community of Newberg in the empathetic act of reading expressive letters written by local kids, teachers, parents and friends.

Oregon Humanities Conversation Project| Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities

**This event was rescheduled from Saturday, Feb 9 to Tuesday, March 12 due to predicted severe weather.

More and more organizations and communities are working toward being “inclusive.” But what does that entail? Having a statement at the end of a job announcement to encourage communities of color, queer people, and women to apply can be a start, but how do policies, environment, and culture support this invitation? How do they fail to support it? How do we know if a space is inclusive and accessible for all?

This is the focus of “Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities,” a free
conversation with Rachel Bernstein on February 9, 2019 at 2pm at the CCC and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. 

Rachel Bernstein is the partnership and training manager at Oregon Humanities. For the
past decade, as a political and nonprofit professional, her work has focused on building
the civic capacity and engagement of coalitions, organizations, groups, and individuals.
As a Conversation Project leader, she appreciates discovering what Oregonians are
already doing to create inclusive communities and what questions they are still
struggling with.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage
community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily
lives and our state's future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Carissa at 502-487-6883 ext 104 or carissa@chehalemculturalcenter.org.

6 - 7 pm

Art Talk is a collaborative project of George Fox University's Department of Art & Design and the Chehalem Cultural Center. 

At this FREE weekly lecture series, visiting artist practitioners share their journeys with an audience of both students and community members. Each artist's 30-45 minute presentation is followed by an interactive Q & A session. 

The program introduces a public audience to engaging voices, creative concepts, and critical thinking surrounding art and design.

Monday evenings from 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the Cultural Center Ballroom. Visit the link below for a schedule of speakers.
