Oregon Tribes

Burns Paiute Tribe


The Northern Paiutes were made up of small peaceful bands who roamed extensively in central eastern Oregon. The Wada-Tika were root gatherers and hunters. They lived on a coarse diet of seeds, bulbs, plant fibers, berries, roots, and wild animals. They had leaders but they didn't have a formalized governmental structure or permanent chiefs. The Reservation covers 930 acres of trust land, and 320 acres of fee-patent land. Another 11,000 plus acres of allotted lands is held in trust for individual Indians. The Burns Paiute Reservation was formally recognized on October 13, 1973. In 1988, a newly revised Constitution and By-Laws was adopted by the general membership, and approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

This website will always be "under construction", as work with library cataloging, archives, updating links, are all ongoing projects that will soon be available at this website. Our Tribe is just beginning to learn about the information superhighway and all of its benefits. We want this page to be a powerful and beneficial resource for anyone using it. The incorporation of modern technology into our daily activities is vital for our tribe's continued existence as we enter the 21st century.

Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw

The Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians are the aboriginal inhabitants of the central and south-central coast of Oregon. Their homeland includes the estuaries of the Coos Bay, and the Umpqua and Siuslaw Rivers. The Tribes have been operating under a confederated government since the signing of the Treaty of August, 1855. They currently possess a 6.1 acre reservation and tribal hall erected in 1940, but past claims have not yet been settled. The tribes hope to work out a reservation agreement with the federal government. The Confederation had a relationship with the US government from 1853 until their termination by Congress in the year of 1956. The majority of their members were removed in 1856 from their aboriginal homelands and held on a wind swept spit at the mouth of the Umpqua River at a place called Ft. Umpqua. Their territory encompassed part of Coos, Curry, Douglas, Lane and Lincoln counties. Federal recognition was restored to the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians in October of 1984.

Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians

The Cow Creek Tribe is unique in that they, on September 19, 1853, were one of the first two tribes in Oregon to secure a Treaty with the United States of America. This Treaty, ratified by the U.S. Senate on April 12, 1854, established the Government-to-Government relationship between two sovereign governments. As a result of the Treaty, the Cow Creeks became a landless tribe, ceding more than 800 square miles of southwestern Oregon to the United States. The Tribe was paid 2.3 cents an acre for their land. The U.S. Government was selling that same land, through the Donation Land Claims Act, for $1.25 an acre to pioneer settlers. This Treaty between the United States Indian agent, General Joel Palmer, and the Cow Creek Indian people, had many deficiencies. Specifically, there was no understanding by the Indians of the language or the concept of signing (making their mark on) the Treaty document and further, there was no understanding by the Indians of land ownership, let alone land boundaries (hunting, fishing and gathering sites, as well as Tribal composites, were well established).

The six tribes of the Klamaths were bound together by ties of loyalty and Family, they lived along the Klamath Marsh, on the banks of Agency Lake, near the mouth of the Lower Williamson River, on Pelican Bay, beside the Link River, and in the uplands of the Sprague River Valley. The Modoc's lands included the Lower Lost River, around Clear Lake, and the territory that extended south as far as the mountains beyond Goose Lake. The Yahooskin Bands occupied the area east of the Yamsay Mountain, south of Lakeview, and north of Fort Rock. Everything we needed was contained within these lands.
