In 2015 DAHP received an Underrepresented Community grant from the National Park Service to complete a study of Latino heritage in the Yakima Valley. We are happy to present the findings of the study, prepared by Artifacts Consulting, in the form of a report (in Spanish and English), 37 intensive level historic property inventory forms, two National Register nominations, and oral interviews. You may download the surey report using the link below and access the inventory forms by going to Wisaard.  The National Register nominations are currently being processed by staff and will be posted when they are finalized.  The oral interviews will be housed in the state archives

Preparation of this report would not have been possible without the support from the following entities and individuals: University of Washington, Erasmo Gamboa, Gonzalo Guzman; Heritage Univeristy, Ricardo Valdez, Greg Hinze; Radio KDNA; and Mac Gamboa. Heritage University students and the following interviewees: Nohemi Sanchez interviewed by Yesenia Hunter & Cesar Lopez, Pete Flores interviewed by Emiliano Orozco & Sean Etherington, Jessie Farias interviewed by Joni Snyder and Murry Hannigan, and Gilberto Alaniz interviewed by LaTasha Larez.
