“I'm your Huckleberries!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

The Kinship Cafe is one of my favorite spots. The folks who operate it are always adjusting the menu and serving local favorites like salmon dishes. But what impresses me the most is their varieties of huckleberry items. Huckleberry danish with huckleberry icing, huckleberry slushies, huckleberry cobbler...you name it. The huckleberry ice cream is amazing.
On your next trip through Pendleton, take a moment and go past the Wildhorse Casino and find the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute and visit the cafe. Its usually only open from 11 AM to 2 or 3 PM so plan accordingly. You wont be disappointed.

I visited this place several years ago as a student and I was VERY surprised by the quality and depth of the exhibit. Worth the visit.

“Very Enlightening Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2011

Husband and I visited the Cultural Institute on a Sat. afternoon. Was pretty empty, but that was nice as we had time to take in all the exhibits at our own pace. Lots of great documentation, history, photos, artifacts and wonderful displays. Our favorite was the story of the Coyote in the 'tee-pee" style theater. I think it was made to be enjoyed by children, but we loved it. Afterwards, while browsing the displays, hearing and reading stories, we left feeling very humbled and with an even stronger conviction to be kind people :)

“A must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

This museum was very well done. It was extremely informative on the overview of the local native tribe’s history and culture. There was so much to see that I will have to come back to see what I missed. It showed what took place here from the native’s point of view. It was sad at times to see what had happened to the tribe but it is a story that must be told. I think that everyone should go there and see it.
