Earlier this week, we made our second site visit to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs as part of the planning for our Oregon tribes archives and records training institute. The tribal representatives that we met with from the records center, Culture and Language Education Department, and the Museum at Warm Springs where gracious enough to welcome us into their community and share some of their current projects with us.
As a highlight of our visit, we had the opportunity to tour their tribal museum. The Museum at Warm Springs is a beautiful building and an amazing resource for preserving and passing on their heritage to future generations. If you are ever in Warm Springs, be sure to stop by and take a look, I promise it will be worth the detour.
As with our previous visit, we are excited by the enthusiasm that we were met with by the people at Warm Springs. In taking the time to meet with us and to share their successes and their challenges, they have reaffirmed the need for affordable, local training in archival procedures to ensure that their history be preserved for future generations. We look forward to working with them more in the coming year.
Check back next week as we travel to Siletz, OR to meet with members of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.
