*This memory shared by Klamath Tribal Member, Bill Ray

What does Restoration mean to me?

While serving on the Klamath Tribes Restoration Committee, I recall a trip we all made to to D. C.in which we made visits to Oregon’s congressional delegation. Representative Denny Smith was on our schedule.and he welcomed us and supported the tribes restoration efforts.

During this time I had the honor of having a prearranged lunch with Senator Mark Hatfield in the Senate Dining Room. Chuck Kimbol was my guest and we had a wonderful time. Senator Hatfield introduced us to Senator Biden who had stopped by to say hello.

Restoration has  many other personal memories, and has given me an opportunity to be proud of The Klamath Tribes many accomplishments over the years.

Onward and upward.
