Founders Glenn and Carolyn Schmekel looked for ways to give the descendents of the Methow Tribe a place where they could bring their children and say “here is our story, here was where we lived.”

The Methow Valley Interpretive Center’s mission is to foster cultural awareness and understanding of Indigenous peoples and the natural history of the Methow Valley and Upper Columbia region. We do this through operating an interpretive center and native plant garden, through education programs and field-trips, and through offering opportunities for cross-cultural connections.

Methow Valley Interpretive Center - Native CampThe center offers displays related to the Methow People, the original Native American inhabitants of the Methow Valley, as well as the geology and natural history of the Methow Valley. The Methow are one of the 12 Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation and a key partner at the Methow Valley Interpretive Center. Learn more at History & Archaeology — Colville Tribes

Admission is free – donations are appreciated.
