Exhibit Takedown

Staff carefully remove panels from the Native Indian tribe exhibit.

The Office of the Secretary of State has packed up the Northwest Indian tribe exhibit and soon will be hanging the new exhibit, “Quilts of Valor,” honoring our veterans. The Northwest Indian tribe exhibit, created by the Washington State Heritage Center, part of the Office of the Secretary of State, will continue to be displayed throughout Washington state.

Starting in August, the exhibit, “We’re Still, Here, The Survival of Washington Indians” will be displayed at the Anacortes Museum of Maritime Heritage Center through April 2014. The exhibit will then travel to the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum in Ilwaco for viewing from May to October 2014.

Stay tuned for the next exhibit, Quilts of Valor, where 13 handmade quilts will be displayed for the month of July. On Tuesday, July 2, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Secretary of State’s front lobby located on the second floor of the Legislative Building in Olympia, the public is welcome to attend the free opening ceremony where our staff will award many of the quilts to our veterans. If you cannot attend the opening ceremony, we welcome you to explore the Quilts of Valor exhibit Monday through Friday (except holidays) from 8 a.m to 5 p.m.
