Indian Heritage Murals
“Many positive things are on-going in the effort to save Andrew Morrison’s Indian Heritage outdoor murals. The two new schools under construction now
have names: Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, and Cascadia Elementary School. With these given names they “now” are living human places. The saved Heritage Murals are now being placed in their final locations at each school—stop by and take a look at 1330 N 90th St, Seattle, WA 98103!” – Johnpaul Jones, FAIA
