The Wanapum Band of Priest Rapids values museums as a place to protect, preserve, and perpetuate their culture, traditions, and identity as they walk in two worlds. Voices of those from the past and those in the present speak to future generations. This session examines the collaborative effort between the Wanapum and the Grant County Public Utility District to tell the story of the Wanapum people in a living heritage center through exhibits and architectural design.
