Mountains, Rivers, Rocks, Clouds--They're All Deaf!
July 20, 2012
Yosemite is a naturally Deaf-friendly place. It's the outdoors! You don't need to hear here. You can camp, swim, float, hike, bike, and take in all the scenery without any need for hearing or interpreting. Working here reminded me of this wonderful Clayton Valli poem, "Deaf World," about the natural connection many Deaf people have with the outdoors.

When it opened to the public on May 29, 1926, the Yosemite Museum became the first museum building in the national park system, and its educational objectives served as a model for parks nationwide. It still functions much as it was originally intended, and currently exhibits items which mainly reflect the Native occupation of Yosemite Valley and its surroundings. When in the park, you can visit with one of three cultural demonstrators who primarily staff the Museum.
