there was always a commitment to the future, so will there always be a
commitment to the past. The modern Coeur d' Alene Tribe is the sum of uncounted
centuries and of untold generations. In the tribe's own ancient language, it is
called Schitsu'umsh, meaning "Those who are found here," or "The discovered
people." In this remains a land abundant in beauty and resources, a legacy of
leadership, and a lineage that continues from time immemorial.
The Coeur d'
Alene's are who they always were and who they will always be.
