Tribe members say fire is a sign from Mother Nature


OMAK, Wash. - The Okanogan Complex Fires are burning throughout Okanogan County, including much of the Colville Reservation.

Linda Saint and Mary Vasquez, members of the Coville Confederated Tribes, explained the fires are affecting everyone within the Confederated Tribes, because the fires, and the tribes, are so spread out. But, the community is working together to keep everyone safe.

"We're members of the Colville Confederated Tribes," Saint explained. "I'm a member of the Methow, Okanogan, Chelan, Entiat, Wenatchee bands. This is my homeland here that you guys are on right now."
