Bones Beneath Our Feet characters á 0 Red Feb 19 1858 in 2004Leschi's name was cleared by a special Historical Court of Inuiry headed by the Chief Justice of the Washington Supreme Court This is not just a native story It is the story of all Americans who live on this beautiful land a story for all who are passionate about tolerance dignity and liberty. The story is excellent but I believe the real history suffers a bit in the telling though This story claims that Leschi was a chief of the Nisually tribe however everything that I ve read before says that the Nisuallies had no chiefs until Governor Stevens designated Leschi as Chief so Stevens could have someone official sign the treaty The tribe was governed by a council of respected members not by one person This story perpetuates the fiction that Leschi was at every attack on whites from the Cowlitz area to the Puyallup and Auburn valleys to the foothills around Bonney Lake All while visiting the Snoualmie tribe in the area around North Bend and the Yakama tribe east of the Cascades Not only improbable impossible Those of us who today are use to travel by car on nice smooth roads can t comprehend the difficulty of travelling even short distances in the 1850s The Puyallup and Auburn valleys weren t nice flat cleared areas like they are now They were covered with timber Some of it was huge Douglas firs and cedars Even of it was Alder groves with standing water fallen trees and a wild profusion of blackberries It was exhausting work for any man to navigate a path through the virgin land Most of the claims of seeing Leschi at an attack were either fear induce imaginings or out right lies to further the governor s agenda Both my ancestors and my wife s ancestors were residents here during this period This is my home turf I ve studied the history I ve been to almost every battle site mentioned and some that weren t Governor Stevens was a lying power and fame hungry little martinet who would use any means to further his goals His legacy is a stain on the history of the state of Washington
