This fall the Centralia Timberland Library is hosting a museum exhibit on loan from the Karshner Memorial Museum in Puyallup, WA. Drop in for dedicated viewing times on Mondays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and Wednesdays from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM September 4th through October 9th.
This exhibit – titled “We’re Still Here” The Survival of Washington Indians – presents issues, challenges and successes that Washington Indians have experienced through the years in Washington State. It highlights the conflicts over land, identity, sovereignty, fish and cultural preservation. The exhibit also shows how tribes are successfully passing on the culture to future generations. The exhibit was created with the advice and input of tribal leaders and authorities from around the state.
This program is part of Timberland Reads Together, featuring “There There” by Tommy Orange and Native Voices, focused on Indigenous Peoples history and culture.
