Crow and Colville Nations Receive Training

The Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters recently completed training with Tribal Partners from The Crow and Colville Nations. The two-day Tribal Outreach Program addressed hand tool and power tool safety, proper identification of nail sizes and types, a math review, proper measuring techniques and various materials typically used for interior systems work.

Practice included all students working on a nailing practice project. Students also had to build a bird house by properly reading from a blueprint. In the field, work centered on a bridge on the Wyeth In Lieu Site, near Hood River, Oregon. Native Americans also worked side-by-side with non-natives on The Great Wold Lodge just north of Centralla, Oregon.
