First People of America and Canada - Turtle Island.
Welcome to our site, dedicated to all First People
of North America and Canada, better known as Turtle Island.
This is a child friendly, educational site about Native Americans (American Indians) and members of the First Nations.
Click on my little kachina friends below to show you what's recently been added.
In the early 1800s, our tribe was relocated to the High Desert of Central Oregon.
There were two other tribes who were placed here with us. We are
now the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.
The US government sent us here because the early settlers did
not want this area. They made their homes in the rich lands that
used to be ours. In 1865, we signed a treaty with the war department
who now call themselves the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).
One of the greatest things in life is change. We had no problem
adapting to the High Desert because we knew all too well that
our Creator lived here, too. Here in Warm Springs, we have an
approximate 15-20 acre community garden where all of our people,
including our children and elders, have been planting their own
supplementary foods. The garden is a wonderful place to come together
each year, watching the miracle of seeds turn into an abundance
of healthy edibles.
It's almost late this year in planting some foods. Soon, it will
be summer. The man who always cultivated this land for our tribe
recently retired so the acres can no longer be prepared for our
yearly harvests. It requires larger equipment to cultivate the
We are in dire need of a small tractor and cultivator to continue
on with our yearly planting. Our tribal garden could use your
help. It would be a to see this labor of love between our people,
continue on for many years to come.
Our goal is to raise a maximum of $19,700 through a few fundraisers
for our community garden. This will provide our people a new tractor
and the much-needed 72" cultivator to be self-sufficient
in caring for a large parcel of land. If we are unable to reach
this main goal for the two larger pieces of equipment, all donations
will go to the community garden for other needed tools and smaller
equipment, much of which is very old and well used.
If you prefer to donate by phone, feel free to call me at 1-888-590-1150.
On behalf of myself and my people of the Warm Springs Indian
Reservation, thank you for your consideration.
