Description
  • The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) is a union of Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla tribes. CTUIR is governed by a Constitution and by-laws adopted in 1949. Tribal members exercise and protect their rights by continuing to practice their traditional tribal religion - Washat - and speak their native languages.  The Tamástslikt Cultural Institute (Tuh-must-slickt meaning “interpreting our own story”) is a museum and research institute located on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Tamástslikt tells the story of the Oregon Trail from the perspective of the tribal community. The permanent exhibition in the museum provides a history of the cultures of the three tribes and of the reservation itself. There is also a second hall for temporary exhibitions of Native American art, craftwork, history, and folklore related to the tribes. The CTUIR secured funding from the federal government, community supporters, and lottery and casino funds, to complete the center. The Tamástslikt opening included a multi-generational procession culminating in speeches and demonstrations.
