Got to take in the Horse Heaven Hills during the wheat harvest season. This assignment really gave me the time to slow down and be part of what I was witnessing.
I recently went on an assignment to photograph Tribal School students gathering bitteroot on the The Yakima Training Center, a large military training base. Part of the Treaty of 1855 says that Native Americans can hunt and gather in the ceded areas. Teachers at the Tribal School area now showing the younger generation how to utilize their inherent right as Native Americans to hunt and gather on government lands as well as teach the cultural value of this sacred food.

“January marked 10 years since Evan Mettie, now 32, suffered a traumatic brain injury when a roadside bomb exploded in Iraq, where he was serving as an Army specialist. The shrapnel that pierced his head damaged his brain stem, leaving him with locked-in syndrome: while he is cognitively aware, he is unable to move or communicate much beyond eye blinks and smiles.
The past decade has been a series of almost unfathomable peaks and valleys for Evan and his parents, as they’ve worked to secure the medical treatment he needed from a health care system that can be infuriating at the best of times.”
April blew by quick. This is the time of year that the Yakima Valley seems to pick up with life. Harvest season has begun, and the weather is beautiful. Also, April marks my second year with the Yakima Herald-Republic. Here are some of my favorite frames from this month!
Yakima felt the ‘Bern’ last month when Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., spoke at a rally at the SunDome. My photo team triple teamed this event. We all worked around each others strengths, which pushed all three of us to find a different angle and moment. It was obviously an energetic crowd, but what surprised me the most was the diverse range of people seen in one building. From the Latinos to the Native American groups, there was a strong representation of all walks of life and cultures at the event….which was cool to see.
