Yakama

Yakama

Yakamas have lived in Central and South Central Washington since time immemorial. They are one segment of several tribes comprising the Plateau culture of Native Americans in the Northwestern United States. Yakamas continue spiritual practices like the sweat house cleansing in preparation for traditional life way activities like medicine food gathering and participating in seasonal first-food feasts of thanks and respect to other beings with whom we share Mother Earth. Yakamas continuously strive to keep these life-way laws handed down from the Creator.
