My grandpa was born in Worland and migrated to Wapato in 1942 but his older brothers were in Wapato by the late 1930s. My grandpa was Pilar Vasquez. I also grew up in Wapato and heard a lot about the Worland families. Many resettled in an area of Wapato that became known as 'Tortilla Flat' where the Mexican Pentecostal Church is located(Templo Cristiano). I know the Vasquez's, Ricos, Jamies, and Villegas' all from Worland and many still in Wapato. I know of the company colonies, I know the sugar company built a new colony across the river in 1935, I never heard of Colonia de Don Juan, I'm assuming this was the old colonia? I'm very interested in the Mexican School(Spanish School) built in Worland in 1936, its one of the few Mexican School remnants stil in use(very rare) albeit for other means. I'm also interested in the Mexican Pentecostal Church, since one was established in Wapato in the 1940s and has links to the one in Worland(e.g. Felipe Rico). I'm trying to interview as many people from Worland who migrated to Wapato as possible, considering so many have passed away. Its a distinct story that needs to be documented because its so different from the migrants from Texas, California, or Mexico. If you want to discuss more please call me at 206-390-5205 or email at gonzog@uw.edu.
