May 6th - Leschi Honor Walk 2023
Pre-Registration is Required! Registration is limited to a certain number of participants, so please fill out pages 2 & 3 on this form ASAP, and send by May 1st, 2023.
It is Nisqually Tribe’s pleasure to once again host this event. The Nisqually Tribe and Joint Base Lewis McChord hosted this event annually and every year it is a great success.
Our Walk/Run/Tour will be an event to remember. We have secured the Joint Base Lewis McChord Military Reservation again for 2023; this was formerly the Nisqually lands pre-1917 condemnation.
The advanced walkers and runners will be using the route known as “Range 91” to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery, via the condemned allotments and Church sites. The walkers who want to take the “Short Walk” will take the bus tour to Ross Cemetery, and complete the 2.5 mile walk to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery. There is a MAP attached with details.
We are pre-registering all applicants because this is a sensitive area, and we must have advance notice of everyone’s arrival. Tribes wishing to send a van or bus on the tour must register the vehicle by May 1st. All participants will be shuttled at 9 am and the walk/run/tour will start promptly at 10:00 am. We cannot make any exceptions. If you are not on-site and pre-registered, you will not be allowed to start late.
The shuttle tour begins promptly at 10:00a.m. The tour will be up to two hours long, with restrooms provided. This tour will conclude at Clear Creek Hatchery, and we’ll have sandwiches there. There is a lot to see at our hatchery!
There will be First Aid assistance available, law enforcement cruisers for emergencies, and the shuttle buses will have historical information on them for people who want to participate in the tour. Historical information will also be provided.
The Leschi Heritage Foundation and Tribal Council encourage all Nisquallies and other nations to attend, and welcomes other tribes’ participation in this event.
