Entiat Tribe Exhibit

with Wendell George

Wendell George is a member of the Colville Confederated Tribes and is now retired after many careers such as helping land a man on the moon as an engineer for Boeing, tribal planner, elected tribal Councilman, tribal corporation CEO, author, owner and operator of a 100-acre apple orchard and a 150-head cattle ranch. His great-grandfather, Chilcosahaskt, was Chief of the Entiat tribe, his grandfather, Lahompt, started the first family cattle ranch and his dad, Moses, was elected to the first Tribal Council.  We are greatly honored that Wendell has given us permission to use words from his book , Last Chief Standing , to tell the story of the Entiat Tribe from his tribe's perspective. The exhibit will be the featured on Opening Day and throughout the Summer of 2023 and become a permanent part of the museum. We are also honored to be working with Artist Cheryl Grunlose,  a member of the Lakes, Wenatchee, and Entiat bands of the Colville Confederated Tribes.  She uses pictorial art to tell stories, and her drawings as a plateau style ledger artist are richly influenced by a combination of her tribal history and traditions.
