Indian Culture and History
What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Wishram language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Wishram tribe and their society. Please note that Wishrams and other
American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Wishram history is interesting and
important, but the Wishram 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. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
