About Agency Creek Expressions
We work with tribal members of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Intuitively, we find new ways to further cultural knowledge in a way that’s exciting and accommodates different learning styles.
We take great care in the planning involved with implementing events, teaching classes, visiting elders and inspiring youth. Our creative approach makes cultural education a positive experience and provides opportunities to form meaningful connections in the process. By learning about our culture together and inspiring others, we believe we can strengthen our tribal community.
About Brian Krehbiel
Brian Krehbiel was born and raised in Oregon. He acquired a passion for building and creating art that’s connected to the first native people of Oregon, most prominently, canoe making. Canoes are meaningful and culturally significant. They draw people in and bring them closer together by sparking an interest to learn and connect with tribal culture. From the first time Brian built a canoe, he knew that he wanted to be a canoe maker; it’s an important aspect of his larger goal, which is to promote the growth of tribal culture.
