Had a great time growing up and playing with indian kids in grade school years. They were an exuberant bunch and would try anything once.

I also had a great indian experience in my grade school years. Our apartment was right next to Albo Horn's apartment. Albo was the great-great grandson of Chief Chenoweth of the Klickitat tribe. He used to take me fishing and he told me lots of things about the indians. It helped me understand their way of life and gave me a great respect for them.

Bill, that would be valuable to write down if you can recall those talks.

I still watch them grow up. They still have their way of life.
We are not all the same. People have their cultures, which makes up a big part of who we are as individuals.
But I think all cultures must enjoy a laughing baby.

Yes, Bill, Albo was a Chenowtih -Underwood. They weren't known as Klickitats, but don't know what they were, as they were very, very small. Yes, probably a spin off of the Yakima from years and years prior....It was the Yakima that came down and caused the massacre at The Cascades, and sadly when the troops came up from Ft. Vancouver to address the issue, the little tribe of Chenowith was the first they encounted and we know the outcome there. According to what came down in the family Chenowith wasn't even on the Columbia at the time. He was off down on the coast collecting clams...
One of my great uncle was married into that family. Lots of very interesting history there. Some very sad and did not have to happen. I know exactly where Chenowith had his little camp on the Columbia below Ruthton and is buried there in a cave, according to family.
As to the baby in the photo. My question is how long did they keep them on their cradle board. There are some mothers who should take a lesson from these Indian mothers. They at least had their children under control and knew where they were!!!!
