It is important to understand the geographical location of our Kalispel ancestors and where we are going in the future. This section contains maps, both current and historical, of land that has been of great significance to the Kalispel Tribe of Indians.
The Kalispel Indian Reservation is located approximately 55 miles north of Spokane in Pend Oreille County. Established by an executive order of President Woodrow Wilson in 1914, main reservation consists of 4,654 acres along ten miles of the Pend Oreille River’s east bank near Usk, Washington. The Tribe now owns 3,527 acres of Tribal trust land in total.
There are approximately 2,600 acres of fee lands scattered across 20 sites in Washington and Idaho obtained for habitat conservation and other economic purposes. Since 1996, the Tribe has obtained ownership of approximately 300 acres of land in Airway Heights, including 40 acres of Reservation Trust Land designated for gaming.
