Gorgeous Hood to Hood Relay takes place on land ceded to the US Government by tribes of the Columbia Basin. This is the homeland of tribes that have been here for many millennia, and continue to maintain connections to this place. The Walla Walla and Wasco tribes lived along the Columbia River north and east of Wy’East, now known as Mt. Hood. They relinquished approximately ten million acres of land, but reserved the Warm Springs Reservation for their exclusive use. This reservation now borders much of southeastern Mt. Hood National Forest.
