2014 is a year to "Celebrate our Youth"
Every exhibit and event at The Museum at Warm Springs will focus on our youth. Our youth play a vital role in our community. We are mindful of the fact that today's youth will become tomorrows leaders. We must support them, nurture them, teach them, inspire them, and allow them to grow into the strong leaders they will become.
We are but caretakers of our own traditions and culture for a moment in time, then we will pass that knowledge to the next generations.
"Our youth, encourage them and believe in them, we are in good hands."
Current and upcoming Exhibits and Events:

N'chi Wanapum Annual Canoe Journey
Cedar canoes are the traditional mode of transportation for people of the Pacific Northwest and the Columbia Plateau. Warm Springs has nurtured a youth group of the community for 3 years now participating in Canoe Journey in a successful effort to revive cultural teachings, songs, and dance. Each year around July, more than a 100 canoes from as many as 90 US Tribes, Canadian First Nations and New Zealand and an estimated 12,000 people participate in the annual Tribal Canoe Journeys. "We pull together; we sing and dance; and we share our culture – everthing in honor of our past, present and future generations." This year 2013, N'chi Wanapum joins other canoe families as they "Paddle to Bella Bella BC, Canada."
