New displays at the Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco celebrate the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. The airport exhibits local and regional artwork each year, and the Colville Tribes' pieces showcase historic and modern imagery, cultural touchpoints and regional vistas.
The displays also include QR codes that link to videos created by the Colville Tribes.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be able to share the stories of our people with all who pass through the Tri-Cities Airport,” said Jarred-Michael Erickson, Colville Tribes chairman, in the statement. “Through these beautiful billboards, we are able to showcase our culture – from the importance of food gathering to traditional regalia and the celebrations of the Colville people past and present.”
Buck Taft, airport director, added that, “the mix of people, the incredible landscapes and the informative videos offer several reasons to engage with the displays and learn more about the region’s indigenous communities. We hope that our passengers connect with these pieces all year long.”
