Yakama Reservation

The Yakama Reservation and ceded territories consists of Mt. Adams, the Yakima River, Medicine Valley, evergreen forests, meadows, Celilo Falls, Fort Simcoe, Columbia River and beautiful rolling hills. We have always honored and respected Mother Nature. She gives us our huckleberries, roots, choke cherries, deer and salmon. As you walk around our campus we have a wonderful view of Mt. Adams.

Yakama has a long history and our full name is the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation. One of our great leaders was Kamiakin. To learn more about our history click here.
