Confederated Umatilla Journal

Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR). The focus of the class included how tribes are managing human-environmental systems to accomplish their sustainability goals, and how tribes are incorporating knowledge and western science into their stewardship strategies. To learn about the work it t akes to manage and grow n a t ive pl ants, the UW students put up w ith rain to help employees at the plant nursery pot seeds and transport plants from the greenhouses to the potting fields. They also spent a day with Wenix Red Elk, Public Outreach and Education Specialist for the Department of Natural Resources at the CTUIR. They visited Iskuulpa and learned about first foods like cous, and were told the CTUIR creation story. "It's great to have five kids out here ... it saves us a lot of time," said Steve Bushman, Native Plant technician. "They were excited even though it started to rain ... they' re hard workers." In an essay written by UW student Casey Wynecoop, a Spokane Tr ib al member, he stated that as a child he' d visit both Mission and Pendleton before the new casino was built and he was impressed with how far the Tribe has come since then. "It was a privilege to see and experience what they have been able to accomplish with their revenue from a gaming enterprise to contribute to their thriving culture," said Wynecoop. "They are an inspiring people."
