EXPLORING THE POWER OF COLLABORATION AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IN NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON

Feb 15, 2019

My guest for this episode is Bill Layman, a retired mental health counselor who has spent countless hours learning about our region’s Native American past and finding ways to share the culture and history with our community.

Layman, together with his wife Susan Evans, has been instrumental in beginning to bring the threads of the Native Culture into our collective consciousness. He has told the stories through, events, speeches, books and by searching out people like Randy Lewis who know the myths, stories and oral history of the region.

The Columbia Gateway Project being envisioned for the north end of Wenatchee would create a unique opportunity to welcome Native Americans back to our valley in a positive way.
