The Shafer Museum in Winthrop has been given the 2018 Award for Publication Excellence by the Washington Museum Association, for its role in publishing Richard Hart’s book “Lost Homeland: The Methow Tribe and the Columbia Reservation.”
“Lost Homeland” was published in 2017. It traces the history of the Methow Tribe from its earliest ancestors through today, when most members of the tribe live on the reservation of the Colville Confederated Tribes. The book is illustrated with maps, documents and dozens of historical photos, many which have never been published before.
Proceeds from sale of the “Lost Homeland” will be shared with the Colville Confederated Tribes and Shafer Museum. It is available locally at the Shafer Museum, the Mazama Store and the Trail’s End Bookstore.
