Native American Chiefs Frank Seelatse and Jimmy Noah Saluskin were members of the Yakima tribe from eastern Washington State. The tribe called themselves Waptailmim, meaning "people-of-the-narrows," because their village was located near Union Gap along the Yakima River. In 1804, the Yakima encountered Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, whose report on the abundant wildlife and rich soil attracted white settlement.
