Comments
"I remember being down town late one afternoon, waiting for my dad at the barbershop when the siren went off. I asked my mom what it was and she said at 6 o'clock all the Indians and negros had to be out of town. 'They had to ride away into the sunset.' I thought like in the movies. I asked if we had to go and she said no. "When I started first grade a little Indian boy, John, came to school for a few days. The teacher sat him beside me. I tried to make friends with him, but he did not talk much and I was always getting in trouble for talking. He said he was living in a camp beyond where we lived at the edge of town." -former Walla Walla resident, born 1946
