History of Wapato Point
The Wapato Family has owned Wapato Point for over 100 years.
This area was originally part of the Columbia or Chief Moses Indian Reservation, established by two executive orders in 1879 and 1880. The reservation originally extended from Lake Chelan and the Chelan River on the south, to the Columbia and the Okanogan River on the eastern side, to the Canadian border on the north, and to the crest of the Cascade Range on the western side.
Almost immediately, white stockmen and gold seekers began a movement to break up the reservation. On February 23, 1883, President Chester A. Arthur signed an executive order, which restored to the public domain, a strip of land fifteen miles wide along the Canadian border. A few months later, on July 7, 1883, Moses and two other chiefs signed a document in Washington, D.C., which made it possible to open the reservation for homestead and mineral entries. Read more.
