Beautiful Taxúma (Mount Rainier) ~ Washington
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?”
The Yakama Reservation lies along the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountain Range and the Taptíil (Yakima River) in south-central Washington. There are fourteen tribes and bands that make up the Yakama Nation. More than 11,000 people are enrolled in the Yakama confederation of tribes, and there are more than 14,000 people living on or close to the 1.2 million acre reservation. The Yakama language is called Ichishkíin, and consists of several different dialects that are spoken by the 14 tribes as well as other tribes in the Northwest such as the Warm Springs people in Oregon and the Nez Perce in Idaho.
The Yakama Reservation is located 185 miles southeast of Seattle, WA; 140 miles northeast of Portland, OR; and 202 miles southwest of Spokane, WA.
