Indian Reservations are some of the most spiritually desperate places to travel. With alcohol and drug abuse running rampant throughout the population, these people need Jesus. With some physical work projects to the church and outreach activities for all ages, this feels very close to an international trip.
The Yakama Indian reservation lies along the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains in the south central part of the state of Washington . The Yakamas have more than 1 million acres of land, half again as large as Rhode Island .
The salmon is a sacred animal to the tribes of the Yakama Nation. They are a vital part of the tribes’ culture, religion, and well-being. Ceremonies were celebrated each year honoring the first salmon. Tribal fishermen would harvest upwards of a million pounds of salmon a year.
Today, Toppenish , WA , has become the headquarters for the Yakama Indian Nation and is known as the “City of historical Murals.”
