Wallowa Band Nez Perce Trail Interpretive Center

Grant Amount: $9,000
Project: Salmon cooking station and Joseph Interpretive Exhibit Tipis
Year: 2011
Location: Wallowa, OR

The Nez Perce Homeland Project is a grass roots endeavor to develop a place in the Wallowa Valley where the Nez Perce people can once again celebrate their traditions and customs.  It aims to connect a new generation of Nez Perce people, local community members, and visitors from around the world with stories of the past and a vision of the future.  This grant furthers that mission by: 1) construct a rock salmon cooking station beside the traditional dance arbor in Wallowa to be used during the annual Tamkaliks Celebration and Friendship Feast; 2) replace the two aging Nez Perce style tipis, decorated by Nez Perce artists, at the Homeland Project Interpretive Exhibit in Joseph.
