CHENEY, Washington — The Great Drum was rhythmically beaten by ten Native American Salish Singers seated about it. Their Song drifted over the Palouse Prairie as it had before for untold years.

Hundreds gathered on the high ridge above Eastern Washington University, below the white colored water tower with the school’s logo, a huge black and red eagle painted on its side. The logo had been changed in the 70s because empowered Native American students threatened a complete boycott unless the school rid itself of the demeaning moniker, the Eastern Washington “Savages.”
