The "Champoeg Gatherings" were a series of large gatherings. In 1841, 1842 and 1843, many American settlers and French Canadians came together in Champoeg, a small town in Oregon, near Portland. They held the Champoeg Gatherings. The "Bostons" wanted to create a government to make laws; in 1841, Oregon Country had neither a government nor [its own] laws. On May 2nd, 1843, the American pioneers and "Pasiooks" ended their meetings and they said that decided to create a proper government and capital city.

Many of the Americans wanted to have a government, but few of the French-Canadians wanted this, because many of the "Bostons" believed that if a government was installed in Oregon Country, the region would easily become part of the United States. (In 1841, Oregon Country was jointly owned by the USA and British North America. 5 years later, the Americans and Canadians divided the region, and the USA took one half and the other half went to Canada.)

Today a large area of land to commemorate the last Champoeg Gathering can be found in Oregon.

The Kalapuya know the Champoeg region as čʰámpuik, or "the place where [we] obtain yampah root."
