Officials of the Yakama Nation museum in Toppenish will recognize the Lewis and Clark bicentennial, but will not celebrate. Marilyn Malatare, curator of the Yakama Nation Cultural Heritage Center, said a lot of Native people don't believe it should be celebrated. The tribal museum will use a $30,000 federal grant to identify changes and the impact of settlers who followed the explorers nearly 200 years ago.
