Wasco Culture and History

As a complement to our Wasco language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Wasco tribe and their society. Please note that Wascos and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Wasco history is interesting and important, but the Wasco Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Wasco link to add.
