Chief leschi coloring pages

Oct 19 2019

Leschi was born 1808 into the Mishalpam (″Mashel River people″) or Mica’l Band of Upper (Mountain) Nisqually to a Nisqually chief and a Klickitat (X̣ʷáɬx̣ʷaypam – “Prairie People”) woman of the Yakama (Mámachatpam). Their primary village site was Basha’labsh on Mashel River near present La Grande, Washington in what is today southern Pierce County, Washington. He also had an older brother, Quiemuth, and a sister. The Nisqually people (Squalli-Absch – “people of the grass”) traditionally occupied a large area along the Nisqually River and its delta at the foot of Puget Sound, an area rich in fish and game. Leschi was respected by his people. The origin of Leschi’s name is unknown. Leschi more than likely adopted it, and it may have been influenced by a distant relative, or he may have just enjoyed the sound of it.
