David Douglas, a history teacher at Columbia River High School, has his eyes set on a particularly unique destination this summer: the small island of Saipan. Douglas’ trip isn’t just for vacation, however, rather it’s part of a program to help educators gain an elevated understanding of the island’s role in World War II from the mouths of Indigenous historians.
