“The Dalles, Northwest Trading Center for 10,000 Years”
A step back in time and history. For more than 10,000 years, The Dalles has been one of the areas along the Columbia River that supported flourishing civilizations. Ancestors of today’s Yakama, Warm Springs, Umatilla and Nez Perce tribal nations lived and fished along the river’s banks, trading their dried smoked salmon with indians who came from all over the western part of North America as well as Mexico and the Southwest.
