Babies First Home Exhibit
Cradle Boards from The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Cradle Boards are important to a baby, providing warmth and security. During a baby’s first few years, they may have up to three or four baby boards going up in size as needed. From fully beaded buckskin cradle boards, to Pendleton fabric or cloth, each cradle board is made with love and good thoughts for the baby. This exhibit will feature cradle boards from our collections and from the Warm Springs community.

RESILIENCE: The Boarding School Experience of Warm Springs and beyond
Boarding Schools have had lasting impacts good and not so good for many Native American children. You will see and hear first hand observations from some that have lived the boarding school experience. Some memories will be heartfelt, poignant, sad, bitter, but most important, it will be the truth, as remembered by the students, now parents and grant parents.
In the decades past, families were not given the choice for their children to attend boarding schools. Over time, it became a choice, tribal high school students are now opting to attend boarding schools, finding positive learning experiences. You will see and hear their memories as well.
You do not want to miss this meaningful, candid account of Boarding Schools, then and now.
