Native American Heritage

 
Every year, White Bluffs plans a series of events to commemorate the
culture and heritage of our Native Americans. 
Fall, 2017 will be very special, thanks to our sponsors, The Wildhorse Foundation and Walmart Community Grants!


For the first time, White Bluffs will bring the Wanapum Discovery Unit to the museum parking lot. The Wanapum Native Discovery Unit is a part of the Wanapum Heritage Center. It is a custom motorhome that brings the Wanapum history and culture to you. By touring this unit, you will learn who the Wanapum are, what foods they eat, about their way of life, what is important to them, and how they maintain their culture. Inside the unit, visitors will view a miniature of the old Priest Rapids Wanapum Village and many other Wanapum artifacts. October 27, 28. 10am - 4pm
~~~
 
In addition to the Discovery Unit, White Bluffs will be presenting two (2) exhibits.
An exhibit of Native Basketry will be featured at the Richland Library,
October 21 - November 25.
An exhibit of Native American artifacts at White Bluffs Quilt Museum,
October 17 - November 22.
  The East Benton County Museum will give a lecture covering their Native American collection followed by a tour of their display.
The museum is located at 205 Keewaydin Drive, Kennewick.

Admission to the East Benton County Museum: Adults $5, Seniors $4, Youth 5 to 17 $1,
Under 5 Free, and Members Free

 
White Bluffs will also be presenting a Class in
Native Beading and several Craft Demos.

For more than 60 years, Grant PUD and the Wanapum have worked together to protect, preserve and perpetuate the natural and cultural resources of the Priest Rapids Project. Brought together in the 1950s with the federal licensing of Priest Rapids and Wanapum dams, the two groups committed to a long-lasting relationship built on mutual trust and respect. As construction on the dams began, the Wanapum stood in support of the utility. In return, the Wanapum maintain their traditional culture and religious lifestyles at their ancestral home.
