Port Angeles Multicultural Task Force meets on Lower Elwha reservation today

The Port Angeles Multicultural Task Force meets today from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to hear from Lower Elwha Klallam tribal members in the wake of last month’s graving yard construction shutdown.

The meeting will be held in the dining hall of the Lower Elwha Tribal Center, 2851 Lower Elwha Road, west of Port Angeles.

Although the meeting is open to the public, the goal of today’s session is for the 17 task force members to gather information first-hand at a location that reflects the tribe’s community and culture.

The Hood Canal Bridge graving yard project was canceled by the state Department of Transportation on Dec. 21 after the discovery of Klallam ancestral remains and artifacts on the site of the 2,700-year-old Tse-whit-zen village.

Task force members said the group wants to help the community understand the village’s cultural and archaeological significance.
