Trailhead Talk Series: American Indian Stories with Wendell George

September 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

American Indians of our area, including the Wenatchi and Entiat tribes, have long told stories to pass down history, information about natural resources, and to teach children how to be in the world. Join Wendell George, a leader of the Colville Confederated Tribes, in an exploration of some of these stories and their importance to our local area.

Wendell George is a member of the Colville Confederated Tribes and is now retired after many careers including, 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.
