PULLMAN, Wash. — The Wanapum Native American Discovery Unit, also billed as a traveling museum, is coming to Washington State University on April 16-17 for Mom’s Weekend.
The exhibit will be outside College Hall on WSU’s Glenn Terrell Mall and is free and open to the public.
Joy Mastroguiseppe, curator of the WSU Museum of Anthropology, calls the exhibit a beautifully presented story of Wanapum culture.
“The highlight of the exhibit is a detailed model of a traditional Wanapum village, with running water in the river and carefully modeled human figures performing various everyday tasks,” Mastroguiseppe said.
The discovery unit was developed by the Wanapum tribe and the Grant County Public Utilities District.
