Until recent times the Wanapum Indians inhabited the banks of the Columbia River from Beverly Gap to where it is joined by the Snake River near Pasco about 75 miles south.
The Wanapums were a very religious and peaceful people living on fish, venison, berries, and roots. They were expert fishermen, using nets, spears and woven willow traps.
The Wanapums Indians had never fought the whites and as a result they signed no treaties and thus received no special territorial rights. Although numbering in the thousands at one time, the Wanapums are now virtually extinct.
