Before the Columbia, there was Chiawana. The Wanapum, which means the River People, are part of the river and the land through which it flows. Coyote created the river in his efforts to care for the Wanapum. The Wanapum people have been supported by the river’s bounty for thousands of years. We honor the spirit of the river. We are the caretakers responsible for the land and for passing on the teachings of the natural world to the next generation.
