The Chachalu Museum and Cultural Center pays tribute to the resilient legacy of the Grand Ronde people. From the years of Termination to the era of Relocation and when a massive forest fire ravaged their valleys, the native tribes turned the tide in their favor in the era of Restoration and dedicated their lands to a community of cultural activity.

The Chachalu Museum and Cultural Center shares the stories of the tribe’s history, culture, and continue to practice their customs. Visitors can have either self guided or staff guided tours through the galleries with ceremonial artifacts that are still used to this day and read stories that teaches guests some of the native languages.  It is at the Chachalu Museum and Cultural Center where visitors can witness the revitalization of a resilient culture persevering throughout history.

The place of the burnt timbers, or “Chachalu” is what the people of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde community have called this region time immemorial.
