Tribal culture and history

My wife, Barbara, and I both graduated from Wenatchee High School. I moved to Wenatchee from the Colville Indian Reservation when my Dad, Moses, took a job with the state Highway Department after World War II. He wanted to live in Wenatchee because that is where our ancestors lived. We are from the Entiat tribe which is one of the twelve tribes making up the Colville Confederated Tribes. My great-grandfather, Chief Chilcosahaskt, remained at the Entiat Valley and my grandfather Lahompt (Chief Koxit George) was the first of our family to move to the Reservation. My Dad was the last of our family to be born in a tepee and the first to father a college graduate, me (Washington State University). I have written and published two books, “Coyote Finishes the People,” and “Last Chief Standing.” My intent was to make more people aware of our tribal people, especially our culture and history.
