4- fe opening of the national museum
7'v H"?rw Springs elders'
trip to Washington, D.C., for
the opening of the National
Museum of the American
Indian, started out a little
rough but then got a lot better.
The elders arrived early in
the morning at the Portland
Airport, ready for the flight to
Washington D.C, said
Lawrence Squiemphen, of the
Seniors Department staff, who
accompanied the elders on the
After a long delay they
learned that their flight would
be cancelled due to a mechani
cal problem with the plane.
Luckily, they were able to find
another flight, pith the one
drawback being that they had
a four-hour layover in Seattle.
So when they finally arrived
at the nation's capital, they
were very tired and also almost
late for the museum opening
procession, said Squiemphen.
They all made it though.
And among the 25,000 or so

The elders and others who attended the opening of the Na
tional Museum of the American Indian will never forget the
experience, said Seniors Department staff member Wilson Wewa
"It was awesome, " said Wewa. ,, "It was good to be a part of a
once in a lifetime event. "
He said that he was expecting maybe 5,000 to be on hand for
the opening procession. It was awesome seeing the gathering of
more than 25,000 indigenous people, said Wewa.
"I don't think we'll ever see that many Native American people
in one place at the same time again, " he said. "Not in our
lifetime anyway. " , v. .t
He said that most people who toured the museum thought it
was very interesting. Wewa said he would like to have seen more
beadwork among the exhibits; and some people said the museum
downplayed the genocide inflicted on Native Americans.
But overall, he said, the museum was very well put together.
'When you look at the overall intent of the museum, they did
a good job, " he said.
