multnomah indians
Multnomah indians

The Multnomah, a Chinookan band, lived on the upper end of Sauvie Island, which sits at the mouth of the Williamette (Multnomah to the Corps) River in present-day Oregon. They lived off plentiful fish, wappato roots, and berries found on the island.

tenino indians
Tenino indians
  • A band of Walla Walla Indians, the Tenino occupied a large portion of the western plateau south of the Columbian River, where they hunted and gathered roots.
journal entry
  • "This morning we came to a resolution to remain at our present encampment... until we had obtained as much dryed meat as would be necessary for our yoyage as far as the Chopunnish. to exchange our perogues for canoes with the natives on our way to the great falls of the columbia or purchase such canoes from them.... these canoes we intend exchanging with the natives of the plains for horses... untill we obtain as many as will enable us to travel altogether by land. at some convenient point... we purpose sending a party of four or five men a head to collect our horses that they may be in readiness for us by our arrival at the Chopunnish; calculating by thus acquiring a large stock of horses we shall not only secure the means of transporting our baggage over the mountains but that we will also have provided the means of subsisting; for we now view the horses as our only certain resource for food, nor do we look forward to it with any detestation or horrow, so soon is the mind which is occupyed with any interesting object, reconciled to it’s situation."
what we found interesting
What we found interesting
  • What we found interesting during our research is that there were various kinds of plants and animals. Not only animals but native Americans along the snake river. If it wasn’t for Lewis and Clark we wouldn’t know about the west side of America.
