About Mt. Hood National Forest
Mount Hood was known as Wy’east by the Multonomah tribe. This stratovolcano was first formed in a series of eruptions over 500,000 years ago. The Indian legend goes as follows: The Great Spirit Sahalie had two sons who began to quarrel as they aged. One night after a great quarrel, Sahalie awoke both sons and took them to a new land. He instructed each to shoot an arrow to opposite sides of a large river, instructing them that where his arrow landed would become his country and he would become chief.
One shot his arrow into the Wy'east Valley, and became the father of the Multonomah tribe, while the other brother shot his arrow north of the river, becoming the father of the Klickitat tribe. Sahalie then told the brothers he would build a bridge as a symbol of peace to link the two tribes.
Many years passed in peace as the two peoples crossed the bridge in friendship and traded with one another. As time passed, the two tribes fought. Sahalie again was displeased and punished the people by taking away their fires. Rains came, and the people grew cold and hungry. They begged for fire and recognized their flaws.
Sahalie found an old woman who avoided the battles of the people and had fire still. He asked her if she would go to the bridge with her fire and keep it burning there as a symbol of his greatness. The great spirit granted her one wish for completing this task. Her name was Loo-wit, and she wished to become young and beautiful again. The next morning, a young and beautiful woman with a fire appeared next to the bridge. People from both sides of the river came and gathered, some taking it back to their homes and restoring warmth and peace. In time, Loo-wit met two handsome young men. One from the south bank of the river was a chief named Wy’East. The other, who came from the north bank was Chief Kilickitat. Loo-wit was captivated by them both and could not choose whom she loved more. The two chiefs grew jealous, and again battles between the brothers began.
