Wendell George | We shall live again

“We have waited too long for the government to fulfill their promises. They have only given us handouts. We want respect which only comes from doing things ourselves. So let’s form a group that can successfully jumpstart economic development on our reservations. It will not be easy as they’ll have to do a lot of travelling and convince government people to work with tribes the Indian Way.”

Wendell George | Facebook or Smoke Signals

The facebook picture shows Colville tribal Chairman, Michael Marchand, Councilman Willie Womer, Councilman Edwin Marchand and former Councilman Marvin Kheel at the Standing Rock Sioux protest against the oil pipeline. It certainly shows more detail than our old smoke signals.

Wendell George | The Wenatchi (P'Squosa) Territory

In the fall of 1980, Moses George rode on horseback through the NW part of the Wenatchi (P’Squosa) Territory. He and T.B. Charley, another tribal member, were asked by the U.S. Forest Service to look for areas that had previously grown huckleberries. They rode to the Chiwawa Ridge along Raging Creek from the Chiwawa River Road. Chiwawa Ridge is about 2,300 feet elevation with Twin Lakes of Raging Creek and School Lake to the north. Moses was on Dusty, a Forest Service horse, as he overlooked the valley.

Wendell George | Little Joe learns about the symbolism of the eagle

When Neil Armstrong guided the Apollo 11 lunar module to the moon on July 20, 1969, he said “The Eagle has landed.” As he moved to the surface, he said, “One step for man and one giant leap for mankind.” But did mankind’s giant leap open the door for solving world problems? Astronaut Edgar Mitchell believed so during his 1971 Apollo 14 flight but progress has been slow since.

Wendell George | Little Joe and the animal world

It was natural for Little Joe to follow the Indian First Commandment, “Treat the earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.” He and his pet spaniel shared an uncompromising love. She built her world around him by imitating him, like bouncing a tennis ball and catching it. He thought she was the smartest dog in the world and proudly showed the trick to his uncle (Twasen).
