A world class facility inside and out, Tamástslikt is the only museum on the Oregon Trail that tells the story of western expansionism from a tribal point of view. Permanent exhibits bring to life the traditions of the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla Tribes, who have called the region home for 10,000 years. But the museum doesn’t merely remember what has been. Tamástslikt (the word means “interpreter”) connects this rich, storied history to our present day–did you know, for example, that the confederated tribes are recognized leaders in the restoration of salmon habitats?–and then expands the experience further by sharing the dreams and concerns of its tribal community in a moving exhibit called “We Will Be.”

Upon central Washington's plateau and along the Columbia River reside tribal people called the Yakama's. The Cascade mountains shelter this central portion from marine showers. The rolling foothills and Yakima River are the eastern border. The tribal people comprising the Yakama Nation have lived in this area since the beginning of time. They used the entire land base, from the lowlands around the Columbia River to the snow-peaked Cascade Mountains.
