' Federal Officials say the Indian
Tribes should look toward striv

sufficiency with-in their tribe and
Now with the Timber industry
deteriorating in the northwest and
the Salmon runs being endangered
along with most of the resources
depleting what can the tribes do?
Everything is in turmoil across
the country where living condi
tions arc far below average on the
There arc a few tribes across
the country working toward self
uffiriinrv Thrm are tribes on
the East Coast who have reported a fair substantial year through their
gaming establishments. From their operations they were able to help
their senior citizens, enable tribal members to get better homes,
education for the youngsters all from profits from their gaming
r Here on the Western side of the country legislatures arc for
banning all gaming establishments and gambling on Indian Reserva
tions. Whats with the whitcman, wheres the Trust Responsibility? It
could be he's afraid if the Indians do good with their gaming estab
lishments he won't have his finger in the pie, and not the boss. Even
some BIA officials oppose Indian gaming, or at least support the effort
toward gamingon reservations. Maybe the officials in B.I. A. won't be
able to Boss Indians Around, (BIA), if they come self sufficient.
What else can the Indian Tribes do with the land they were
allowed to keep. A pile of rocks where nothing can grow. The
Promises .made by the Government where the officials were eagerly
saying during the treaty signing, "We'll take care of you, see to it you
have homes, health clinics, schools for the young, etc. sure sounded
good at the time of the treaty signing so as the whiteman can have all
the fertile lands for their livelihood, and now when its time to help the
Indians they are trying to find every way to get out of it.
. The minorities of the country, you never hear of what a candidate
for Presidency say what he will do for the American Indians, or now
referred to as "Native Americans." When they talk of the minority its
the blacks and hispanics and other nationalities and never the Native
1 And now its time when the Indian Tribes need assistance there are
always red tape that prevents the Indian people from getting help. And
ail the non-Indians saying, "All you Indians just live off the Govern
ment." The government gives you money every month. We do get
government checks each month, but thats from our own income from
our resources, and just because it comes by government checks
doesn't mean we get money from the government.
;; Yep! Its a cruel, cruel world we live in and the opening of the
tunnel is very, very far away. This is like a never ending battle for the
Native Amcricans...YUN-WI-MAH!!! AHH-NAH-CHI-TOON..
Hug $$ put
to good use
To the editor,
This year 700 hues was ordered
through the Senior wellness Team.
Thanking everyone that ordered.
Some money went towards the
Liz Cross fundina and the rest to the
Warm Springs Community Center
for the Aerobics room. Since the
Wellness team all believe in exercise
as the best prescription for health.
They figured this is where the money
should be spent
Sorry for the lateness of not get
ting your hugs to your people but
we were swamped and could not
make the grams fast enough. Vol
unteers were not receptive this year,
there was 3 or 4 reliable ones that
gave a lot of their time, and I could
not be there daily as before when I
was employed by the Center, making
it difficult to complete the job. Big
thanks to the Recreation staff for
stepping in and finishing they are
all a great team and to the guys for
delivering the hugs. Next year we
will do something different. Thanks

Congratulations on completion of Museum
To the community,
My congratulations to the Con
federated Tribes on the occasion of
the opening of The Museum at Warm
Springs. My family and I were sorry
to have missed the dedication cer
emonies we were battling illness
at the time. But I was there in spirit,
and my thoughts are being delivered
by the trusty Spilyay.
Whenever I think of the museum,
I can't help but recall those germinal
days in the mid-'70s when the col-
lwiinc was iust eettine underway. I
can picture Felix Wallulatum and
Harry Paget sitting in their office in
the Old Boys Dorm, scheming and
dreaming, probably never imagining
anything as magnificent as the mu
seum you have just dedicated.
The other pleasant image that runs
through my mind is of hordes of
students from around Central Oregon
making annual field trips to the mu
seum. Think of the new understand
ing and appreciation for reservation
culture and history that will result
frrm ihMfi visit"!.
It's graufying to know that the
Tribes have a first-class way of tell
ing their own story, to their own
children as well as to neighbor chil
dren. Of course, nothing can replace
the old stories told in the old way.
But this is another way of telling
so all can hear.
My best wishes at this important
