Trip to Warm Springs

Kahneeta Hot Springs Resort, located on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Indian Reservation, sits in a gorgeous, beautiful, awe inspiring landscape.
Just driving to the resort!
Mind bending rock formations.
I need a geologist in the back seat to help explain what I’m seeing.
Located on the dry side of the state, blue, blue skies.
The remains of a Presbyterian church and mission.
Up close, so pretty,
Wildflowers underfoot.

    I assume American Indians historically lived on that land? The land is beautiful, but I wonder how the Indians fed themselves from that land? It would be so interesting to hear how they survived without modern agriculture.

      Thank you for your comment! You are right to ask about the history of the indians who make up the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
      I was visiting the reservation for Pi-Ume Sha Days. Last year I wrote about it in my July 3rd blog post.
      I wrote:
      “June 25th was the Pi-Ume Sha Treaty Days Pow Wow in Warm Springs, Oregon.
      In 1855 a treaty was negotiated by the native peoples and the Oregon territorial government. It defined the area of the reservation and affirmed the right of the tribes to harvest fish, game and other foods outside the reservation boundaries. Through the years the Tribal Constitution, the Corporate Charter and the Declaration of Sovereignty were added.
      The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs celebrate these documents with Pi-Ume Sha Days.”

      I recommend a very good documentary about US treaties with Oregon indian tribes. It’s called ‘Broken Treaties’:
