2012 Warm Springs Traditional Powow Completed!

2012 Warm Springs Traditional Powow Completed!

Warm Springs Tribes complete a Historical Journey Back to Skibowl and celebrate with a Traditional Powwow

On September 29, 2012 the Warm Springs Tribes completed a three day horse trail ride connecting the Warm Springs Reservation to Mt. Hood Skibowl. 

(Government Camp, OR, October 3, 2012) – The powwow was a great success with a few thousand in attendance this past Saturday for this historic event.  A parade of horse riders and walkers entered the Skibowl West base area in full regalia after a three day journey from the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation, marking the footsteps of their ancestors.

“We plan to honor the Warm Springs Tribes each year with this annual event and are blessed to have them come back to be part of their ancestral heritage on their native lands,” said Kirk Hanna, owner/operator of Mt. Hood Skibowl.

After the ceremonial opening of the Wiwnu Wash Mt. Hood Tribal Heritage Center, guests gathered for a traditional salmon bake dinner followed by the Grand Entry for the powwow.  The powwow went into the night with plenty of dancing and drumming, both of which offered large cash prizes for contest winners.

Chief Delvis Heath was in attendance as well as Stanley M. Speaks, Regional Director for the Bureau of Indian Affair’s Northwest Regional Office, to celebrate this historical occasion.  Each provided those in attendance with words of wisdom honoring those who have been a part of establishing such a monumental event.

Terry Richards of the Oregonian covered the event.  His articles including photographs and videos may be viewed at the following links: http://blog.oregonlive.com/terryrichard/2012/09/warm_springs_tribes_dedicates.html
