Handmade quilt square which depicts an oak grove and indigenous people as part of the 15-panel Heritage Quilt of Cedar Mill. Description from accompanying pamphlet: BLOCK 6 STANDING OAKS by Wilma Kennedy. On the floor of the valley were many Stands of large, old oak trees. These groves served a 'places of encampment' for the Indians of the Tuality Plains. The tallest oaks survived, but the undergrowth was burned away by the Indians, probably to create grassy meadows where game would come to feed making hunting'easier. The area of Cedar Hills. Blvd. at Walker Road was the Indian village of Osceola, now only a name on old maps. (The peoples of this area have also been called Atfalati or Kalapuya of the Tualatin Valley.)
