Umatilla Tribes oppose interpretive center site
The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation of Oregon met with officials in Richland, Washington, to discuss a proposed museum.

The tribe supports the idea behind the $40 million Hanford Reach Interpretive Center. But the tribe says the facility should be moved elsewhere in order to preserve a historically significant site at South Columbia Point, where the Columbia and Yakima rivers meet.

"The tribes' position hasn't changed," said Armand Minthorn, a tribal board member, at the meeting, The Tacoma News Tribune reported.

The center would provide information about the history and culture of the area.
