Because of the uniqueness of its
design, a Portland insurance com
pany has presented The Museum At
Warm Springs witn a frame repro
duction of the artist's rendering of
JBL&K officials Jonathon Hart
and Dennis Doherty were in Warm
Springs last week to present the
framed reproduction to Museum Di
rector Michael Hammond.
Hart said he became enamored
with the design two years ago on a
company outing at Kah-Nee-Ta
where he saw it on display. He be
lieved the illustration was so out
standing that it should be framed and
put on permanent display.
The illustration is done by artists
Louis Gagnon for Stastny Architects
and features the Museum emerging
from the earth in a rimrock patter
with the building exterior on top of
"I loved the drawing and wanted a
copy of the illustration in my office "
nan said. He also believed a copy
needed to be hanging in The Mu
seum and that is why the company
made the presentation.
Doherty said JBL&K likes to get
involved in community events. "We
try to give back to the community
especially for worthy causes."
Hammond said, "It's very pleas
ing to know that visitors to The Mu
seum are touched by their experience
here. Hart was one of those visitors
and he wanted to give the wonderful
drawing back and we're very appre
ciative of that."
The framed reproduction features
the three colors of the Confederated
Tribes of Warm Springs in a geomet
ric pattern around the drawing. The
drawing will be hung in the hallway
between the Museum staff offices
and the library.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs will
present information concerning the
proposed legislation to the Indian
Land Consolidation Act at a consul
tation meeting in the Warm Springs
Housing conference room beginning
at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8.
The Warm Springs meeting is one of
11 such meetings in the Portland
Area at which the overview con
cerning Indian heirship has been pre
sented. A growing problem has faced in
dividual Indians, tribes and the BIA
for many year, the fractionated
ownership of allotted lands. The
problem has now reached the point
where the Department of the Interior's
ability to administer allotted lands,
probate Indian estates ana maintain
the IIM system can no longer keep up
with the increasing number of frac
An attempt to address the prob
lem was made by Congress in 1984
when it passed the Indian Land
Consolidation Act. Part of that Act
requires that when an individual
owner dies, an interest amounting to
two percent or less in a tract of land
will "escheat" or automatically
transfer to the tribe. In spite of this
law, the number of such small inter
ests owned by individual Indians has
grown from 350,000 in 1984 to over
1.5 million in 1994. .
Any proposal to solve the frac
tionated heirship problem must have
two parts: 1) the consolidation of
ownership and 2) the prevention, or
substantial reduction, of further frac
tionation. The objectives can be met
through a land-purchase program,
and by placing limitations on who
can inherit interests in allotted land.

Civics with Darryl Smith,
Accapella with James Burge, and
Teen Parenting with Lisbet Hornung
are her favorite classes. She also
appreciates the support of her night
school teacher Carrie Bodensteiner.
Frank had to struggle a lot being a
teen mother by making-up high
school credits in order to be on track
to graduite with her class. She feels
she received a lot of help from many
teachers and most likely could not
have done it without them. She was
presented with the Principal's Award
her sophomore and junior years.
She feels a bit scared about this
being her last year at MHS, and that
she's probably going to miss it And
regrets not being involved with extra
curricular activities such as dances
due to being a teen-mother. When
she leaves Madras High she will miss
the support she has received from
teachers and the regular schedule
school. She plans her career in
working with distressed children.
Frank did summer work at the Warm
Springs Group Home in 1993-94 and
she really enjoyed it. She is still
looking into a college choice, most
likely a community college.
Frank would like to comment to
the remaining lower classmen, "Stay
out of trouble even in the hardest
of times, stay in school." In five to
ten years from now she sees herself
having a job, probably married and
working in a children's environment.
