Ancestral Homelands

For time immemorial, the Spokane Tribe of Indians have inhabited, protected and respected our ancestral homelands of approximately three million acres. Originally, we lived along the Spokane River in three bands known as the Upper, Middle and Lower Spokane Indians. Members hunted, fished, and collected roots and berries to feed their families throughout the seasons. For many generations, Spokane Tribal families relied on the river waterways for nourishment, medicinal and spiritual purposes, with the grand Spokane Falls a gathering place for many Spokane Tribal Ancestors. Now the Spokane Tribe shares this gathering place--and the name of our Tribe itself--with modern, thriving Spokane County and the City of Spokane. Welcome to our ancestral homelands.
