Celilo Village, Oregon

Celilo Village, Oregon is an unincorporated Native American community on the Columbia River in northeastern Wasco County in the U. S. state of Oregon. It is near the former site of Celilo Falls. In 2003 about 100 permanent residents lived in 14 dwellings; the site was once a major cultural and trading center, until Celilo Falls was inundated by The Dalles Dam in 1957. The 2000 census reported a total resident population of 44 persons living on a land area of 102.11 acres. The United States Army Corps of Engineers provided funding for construction of a new tribal long house in 2006. Most residents of Celilo are members of either the Yakama Nation or Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs; some may be members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, or the Nez Perce tribe. Many residents are fishers engaging in ceremonial and commercial fisheries for salmon and sturgeon in the Columbia River. While the historic fishing site at Celilo Falls is gone, there is an "in lieu" fishing site provided by the Army Corps of Engineers that provides access for tribal members to the river.

Most tribal fishing is done with gillnets or from platforms built along the river. Celilo Village, Oregon United States Census Bureau Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission
