Chief Kamiakin

“He won’t go”

Yakama Nation

Chief Kamiakin has led his tribe to different treaties. One was the Walla Walla Treaty, a treaty that has paved the way through the creation of the Yakama Reservation. Along with the Yakama tribe, he was also able to hold the reigns of the tribes Palouse and Klickitat

Many accounts say that Chief Kamiakin was born a natural leader.

As the chief of the tribe, the main focus of Chief Kamiakin was the improvement of the agriculture, specifically the farming and the irrigation. He invested in cows and horses in order to study the yield of the lands. Also, Chief Kamiakin was known for being a generous leader, as well as having negotiation skills that were very commendable for representing the Yakama Nation in the treaties, which at the time, was called “The act of peace”. But the treaties were broken, Gold was discovered on Indian land north of the Spokane River, and when miners rushed in, the other settlers soon followed.

Kamiakin stated “What of us then? Shall we become degraded people? Let us stop their coming, even if we must fight.”

Kamiakin eventually formed an alliance with a total of 14 tribes living on the Columbia plateau. The leaders agreed on wanting to resist encroachment by American settlers and government officials in the Washington Territory.

Kamiakin then led a band of warriors into the first engagement of the war in 1855; he defeated a force of 84 soldiers near Simcoe Valley. Kamiakin was also instrumental in the final battle of the War. On September 5, 1858, a force of 700 soldiers defeated Kamiakin and his warriors at the Battle of four lakes. Kamiakin was wounded in the battle when he was struck by a pine tree felled by cannon fire. The ensuing hostilities are referred to as the Yakama Indian war.

When Chief Kamiakin passed away in 1877 , he was buried on the shore of Rock Lake. At a later date his grave was desecrated and his body beheaded by an unknown group.

May he rest in peace.
