Tamástslikt Cultural Institute tells the story of three American Indian
Tribes, the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla, who for 10,000 years have
inhabited the Plateau region of the Pacific Northwest, U.S.A. and who
welcomed and assisted the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Tamástslikt brings the story alive with a 14,000 square foot exhibit space that incorporates artifacts, photography, video and interactive multi-media in world class exhibits. Its Museum Store sells American Indian arts and crafts, as well as books and music and uniquely designed Pendleton Woolen Mills Indian blankets. It is located five minutes from Interstate 84, four miles east of Pendleton, Oregon.
In 2005-2006 Tamástslikt has many events and special exhibits planned to mark the 200th anniversary of the Lewis & Clark expedition, which spent two weeks in the Tribes' homeland.
