PR Friday, 28, 1963 Blake Island Offers Recreation HE TILLICUM VILLAGE restaurant is an authentic re- production of the Indian "'longhouse" with a seating ca- pacity for 100 diners, made of handsplit cedar. The "'long- house." rather than the customary teepee was the home of these North Coast Indians. The house grew with each addi- tion to the family and as one left. they took the precious hoards to start their own "longhouse." The famous Salmon "'bakes" are barbecued according to the original genuine Indian manner over open flames as cooked centuries ago. Blake Island, in Puget Sound. is a 45-minute boat ride from Seattle comprising a 473-acre island, acquired by Washington as a State Marine Park. Tillicum, Indian for "'friendly," are the only buildings on this scenic island. Thunderbird Hotel Luke Markishtum, co-owner of the beautiful motel, the Thun- derbird Motel in the Thunderbird Village Resort, Neah Bay, Wash- ington, is proud to tell you that he was born and grew to manhood in this same village. Luke, who lives there with his wife and three children, is proud of his heritage. His grandfather was one of the signers of the Treaty with the United States Government. Otis Baxter, who carved the famous Totem Poles that are legion at Ye Olde Curiosity Shop on Seattle's waterfront, is now carving the Family Crest of the Markishtum family of the Makah Tribe of Indians of Neah Bay. The Thunderbird he is now carving will be ten feet high with a 24-foot wing spread. A whale 21 feet long, carved on Western Red Cedar was pur- chased from the Crown Zellerbach Corporation. It will be flanked on each side by two huge Totem Poles sup- porting the Thunderbird. 'On the 15th of August there will be a tribal ceremony gath- ering to honor the three great Indian chiefs of Neah Bay in front of the carving of the Thunderbird, which they expect will prove to be a great tourist attraction.
