Overview

Established in 1855 on an area one-fifteenth the size of the lands relinquished in return for it, the Warm Springs Reservation in north central Oregon is home to some 3,600 Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute Indians, half of whom are under twenty. This book seeks to understand the reservation’s inhabitants as a "viable people" who are both visible and vocal as they reflect on their daily lives, their struggles and successes, and their hopes for the future.
Michael Baughman and Charlotte Hadella present extended interviews with seven Indian and two non-Indian members of the community. They discuss issues such as the difficulty of maintaining traditional lifeways centered around hunting, fishing, and gathering; the disruptions caused by alcoholism and diseases such as diabetes; and the need for culturally appropriate education for the young. The authors frame the interviews with explanatory material that covers the reservation’s history and relations with white society and its efforts to transmit native languages and cultural traditions to its children.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Warm Springs Reservation in north central Oregon is home to about 3600 Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute Indians. Baughman (emeritus, Southern Oregon Univ.) and Hadella (English, Southern Oregon Univ.) here explore contemporary issues and concerns on the Warm Springs Reservation through in-depth interviews with nine people (seven Native Americans and two non-Natives) who live on or have ties to this reservation. These interviews present a wide range of perspectives on such topics as racism, education, ecology, and the preservation of cultural traditions. Each interview creates a window through which to view the diversity of thought and attitude on the Warm Springs Reservation. The authors paint an insightful and candid portrait of both the difficulties and the triumphs of the Warm Springs Indians while demonstrating the continuing vitality of their culture as they attempt to live in two worlds. Recommended for anthropology and Native American collections in academic libraries and for regional collections in Pacific Northwest libraries.--Elizabeth Salt, Otterbein Coll.
