A Message from The Chinook Indian Nation

support tribal recognition

"The Chinook Indian Nation must be federally recognized as an Indian Tribe. My Chinook community has suffered a grave injustice that is not becoming of the United States of America. We have been dispossessed of our lands, forced to Indian boarding schools, suffered egregious examples of abuse and prejudice and are suffering the effects of these actions to this day. Put simply, we have all the problems of Indian Country with no means of fixing them. We have experienced epidemics of substance abuse, health disparities, suicide and houselessness. These life and death issues lie at the feet of the federal government that has neglected it obligation, by both law and honor, to protect our Chinook people" - Tony A. (naschio) Johnson - Chairman, Chinook Indian Nation
