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.

We will tell you what is new to the siteDonate.

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 many acres.

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.
