2017 Washanaksha Cultural Grant

The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Washanaksha board is now accepting grant applications for 2017 grants.  The application due date is December 1st.  The Washanaksha board administers funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust and other sources. The Museum at Warm Springs is the fiscal sponsor.

Washanaksha is an Ichishkiin word. It means “when something is important, you take it in— heart, spirit and mind—and are committed to carrying it forward no matter what.”  Tribal culture, family, history, dance, art, ceremonies, music and traditional practices are the foundation of the tribal identity.
