"It is the best safeguard I know of against indiscriminate looting that usually attends dam construction."
Letter to Dr. Erna Gunther about the proviso put into the Priest Rapids Dam construction. Possibility of moving relics before they are inundated. Request to be let known far in advance of where the site would be located. Hope that this is paving the way for other tribes dealing with possible dams. Relander is trying to get Dean G. to write on Fort Simcoe. Relander is getting the Wanapums to make items that could be used in his publicity for Drummers and Dreamers. Request for possible ethnology stories.
