Pi-Ume-Sha Treaty Days Powwow attendees, Warm Springs, Oregon, 1992
- The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs (CTWS) began as three separate tribes (the Wasco, Warm Springs, and Paiute) that lived along the Columbia River and Cascade Mountain Range. Each had their own unique customs and languages. In 1855, the Wasco and Warm Springs tribes signed a treaty ceding 10 million acres to the United States in exchange for the 640,000 acres that now make up the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. The Paiutes later traveled from their original reservation and joined the Wasco and Warm Springs tribes. Since its establishment during the late 1930s, the tribal government has advocated for and ensured the continuing well-being of the tribal community by preserving the tribes’ sovereignty, protecting treaty and legal rights, and creating a strong community and economic environment. Every year, the CTWS commemorates the signing of the treaty with a Powwow that displays their resilient cultural heritage. The Pi-Ume-Sha Treaty Days Powwow includes traditional dancing contests, pageants, games, rodeos, parades and foods.
