Every year, White Bluffs plans a series of events to commemorate the
culture and heritage of our Native Americans.
Fall, 2017 was very special!
This year the Native American Discovery Unit parked at White Bluffs Quilt Museum for two (2) days. Friday, October 27th and Saturday, October 28th, from 10::00 am - 5:00 pm. School tours were conducted and many families came to visit.
The Wanapum Native American Discovery Unit (WNADU) is part of the Wanapum Heritage Center. The WNADU is a custom motor home that brings the Wanapum history and culture to you. Inside, our guests learned who the Wanapum are, what foods they prefer, their way of life, and what is important to them, and how they maintain their culture. Inside the WNADU Visitors can view a miniature of the old Priest Rapids Wanapum Village and many other Wanapum artifacts.
White Bluffs also presented two exhibits (one at White Bluffs, one at the Richland Library), a Class in Native Beading, Craft Demos, and the East Benton County Museum presented a lecture and a tour of their collection of Native American Artifacts.
