The annual Nesika Illahee Pow Wow continues on Sunday with a noon Grand Entry. Here’s what it looked like as the dance competition heated up right after the inter-tribal dance that kicked off the fun Saturday afternoon. The pow-wow was dedicated to the memory of former Oregon U.S. Senator Mark Hatfield who died last week following a long illness. Hatfield was remembered for helping to pass federal legislation that created reservation land for the Confederation of Siletz Tribes, and later the legal right to proceed with the creation of an Indian Casino in Lincoln City. Tribal Council Vice Chair Bud Lane told the gathering that Mark Hatfield will always be remembered as a great friend of the Siletz Tribes.
