Kenneth Smith (March 30, 1935 - May 13, 2020)

Kenneth L. Smith
March 30, 1935 - May 13, 2020
Kenneth Leroy Smith, "Walladawish," was one of the most important leaders of Indian Country and the most influential leader the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs had ever seen. He passed peacefully May 13, 2020 in his Warm Springs home overlooking the Deschutes River, surrounded by family.
He was a passionate advocate for the Indian Nation, giving a voice to those who had no voice. He believed the highest priority was to invest in the future generations of his people with the utmost respect and integrity, and to work together to make long-term strategic approaches instead of short-term gains. His philosophical outlook was taken from his grandparents. He said, "My grandparent's legacy will not end here. They instilled so much in me that I will carry forward my studies, my career direction, and a heart full of love for my family and a passion for my people. I will carry all they gave me with hopes the younger generations will follow, as I did them." He followed his roots to give Indian Country the voice it deserves. This included regulations and policies so Tribes could protect the forests, the wildlife, water, air, economics, the people, the children and the Tribal governments. In addition to creating economic sovereignty with his own people, he traveled all over the Country helping many other Tribes in numerous ways. He said, "I believe in the strengths of Indian people which have enabled them to endure and survive. I believe Indian people have the will and the ability to self-govern. The fulfillments, hopes and aspirations of Indian people and their Tribal governments must come from within."
Ken was born into the Wasco Tribe March 30, 1935 and raised by his grandparents, Annie and Wesley Smith, on Dry Hollow Ranch on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation. The ranch did not have electricity, running water or paved roads. He said "I learned what self reliance was growing up on the ranch with my grandparents. They taught me good work habits, to always show up 15 minutes early and the value of education. As a kid, my grandma Annie, Aunt Zelma and I would go pick huckleberries, raspberries, strawberries, and in the fall dig up potatoes." Ken and his grandfather fished for salmon and eel at Celilo Falls on the Columbia River. He always said that the ranch life of cattle and horses taught him about hard work, respect, listening, learning and how to be effective in what one does. He was taught how to take care of his physical body, mind and spiritual soul.
Ken attended boarding school in Warm Springs grades 1-6. He was Junior Class President at Madras High School and excelled as running back in football, 100 yards sprinting and long jumping for the track team.
In 1959 he earned his BS degree in Business Administration with emphasis in accounting, from the University of Oregon. At which time he was the second Native American to graduate from U of O.
Ken and Sybil Cowapoo were married in 1959 and later welcomed their children, Greg and Michele into the world.
In 1959, he immediately went to work for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs as an accountant. Thereafter, he worked as Head Accountant, Controller, Assistant General Manager, Acting General Manager, and as General Manager 1971-1981. He also served three years as an elected member of the 10th Tribal Council. Under his guidance the Kah-Nee-Ta Lodge Resort was built and the Warm Springs Power Enterprises completed, which was the first federally licensed hydro-electric project on any Indian Reservation.
His leadership style was believing in working together and ensuring the team was strong. He was a humble and fair man who always smiled and strived to keep the workplace in balance. Although he enjoyed joking around, he kept everyone on task towards accomplishing their goals for the benefit of all.
In 1981, he married Jeanie Marie Bussey Thompson, and their epic romance and adventures continued for 34 years, until her passing in 2015. Along with Jeanie, her two daughters, Debra and Becky Rae were brought into the family. In their retirement, Ken and Jeanie traveled to many countries experiencing different cultures. They lived between their homes in Warm Springs, Portland and Palms Springs. Their life together was full, vital, rich, diverse and full of mutual respect.
In 1981, newly elected President Reagan, asked Ken to serve as the Assistant Secretary of the Interior Department for Indian Affairs. As Assistant Secretary, Ken controlled a budget of one billion dollars, oversaw a workforce of 16,000, worked with 300 Tribes in the lower 48 states and provided services to 190 Alaskan Native Organizations. He administered 52,000,000 acres of trust land for Tribes and Indian people. Tim Giago, President and Publisher of "Indian Country Today" wrote, "Ken Smith was the best Assistant Secretary Indian Tribes have ever known."
From 1989-1995, Smith returned as Chief Executive OfficeSecretary-Treasurer for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. He was responsible for the second largest work force in North Central Oregon with an annual payroll of more than $24 million dollars at the time. The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs was renowned for being one of the most progressive and successful tribes in the United States. His actions provided the major impetus for cultural awareness, education, health and economic sovereignty among tribal members.
-$7.6 million dollar Cultural Museum at Warm Springs
-$5 million dollar Early Childhood Education Center
-$5 million dollar Health and Wellness Center
-Launched a major breakthrough in diatomaceous earth technology that created the Warm Springs Composite Products
-Launching of Indian Head Casino
-Development of Warm Springs Plaza Shopping Center
After his tenure in D.C., countless Tribes asked Ken to assist them. One example is the Coquille Tribe where he became the Coquille Economic Development Corporation leader, which became a national model of effective leadership and business among Tribal enterprises.
Smith's contributions were innumerable and he was a holder of many honors:

-2017, Honored by Madras Union High School as one of its Distinguished Alumni
-2019, University of Oregon included him in their "Top 100 Ducks who made a difference"
We are truly saddened by the loss of this great leader and loved one. The best way to honor his legacy is for each of us to go forward and make a difference in the lives of others when we can, and to embrace our personal gifts and talents as Walladawish did. Rest in peace Walladawish. Don't worry. The work will be done. The focus will happen and movement will be made for our people. Thank you for creating the foundation for your family, the Reservation, Indian Country and most importantly future generations.
He is survived by his daughters, Michele Hensel (Kendal), Becky Rae Olson Schroeder (David), Debra Olson Daniels; eight siblings and so many others that this page is not big enough to hold them all. He was preceded in death by his wife, Jeanie; and son, Greg. A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, we request contributions be made in his memory to the Museum at Warm Springs, P.O. Box 909, Warm Springs, OR 97761.

My thoughts / tips for anyone considering a trip to Bandon Dunes.

I spent last Wednesday night through Sunday morning at the resort and it most definitely the best golf vacation of my life. We played Old Mac and Pacific Dunes on Thursday, Bandon Dunes on Friday, and Bandon Trails on Saturday. We were schedule to play Bandon Preserve on Friday afternoon, but I hurt my wrist on Thursday and decided to take it easy.
Ok, some random thoughts:
In general, one of the things I liked most about Bandon is that you didn't feel like they were there to rip you off at every turn. If you stay at the resort, rounds are only $235 and then $120 if you decide to play another 18 holes that day, on ANY course. The beers and food was all very reasonably priced, also aided by the fact that Oregon doesn't have any sales tax.
We flew into North Bend from San Francisco and rented a car during our stay. This is definitely the way to go if you can. While the flight can be a little unreliable, driving 30 minutes to the airport beats a longer drive to a different airport any day.
Renting a car was the decision we were most happy about in hindsight. While you can get a shuttle to the airport and you don't really need your own car to get around, being trapped at the resort didn't really appeal to us.
We took the liberty of spending our evenings in Bandon and Coos Bay. The first night we ate the the Grill at Pacific Dunes, but in general I would say that I wasn't thrilled with the the food there. It's OK, but just ok. One place I would recommend for sure is Alloro's Wine Bar in Bandon. Not good for big groups, but it's a fantastic little place with excellent food and wine. We spent one night at the casino in North Bend which, while not sexy, is one of the main attractions of the town.
Another advantage to having our own car was driving down to Bullard's Beach State Park, where you can actually frolic on all of the beautiful beaches you see from the courses at Bandon. It's less than a 10 minute drive south of the resort and I would highly recommend visiting and putting your feet in the 52 degree water.
We stayed in the Lily Pond rooms which are more than adequate. We had two of us sharing one room, but it was a rather large room and I wouldn't have hesitated to put a rollaway bed in there to accommodate another person to spread out the cost a bit. The beds were comfortable and the free wifi was fast enough to do anything that you might need to get done.
Ok, now for some of the golf related stuff. Starting with weather... let me just say that it's not warm and always felt colder than the posted temperature because of the breeze from the sea. It's less windy in the morning and seemingly blowing the hardest in the early afternoon. Bandon Trails is not as windy as it sits back in the woods.
You should definitely bring some long pants and sweaters / windbreakers. You can manage with shorts probably, but your upper body needs something to keep the chill away. I was stupid and didn't bring anything but short-sleeved shirts, but the pro shop had an awesome selection and wasn't TOO expensive. Rain gear is also highly recommended just in case, although we didn't have to break it out.
One thing that I was thankful for was wearing comfortable shoes. This is not the place to be breaking in a new pair of standard golf shoes. The ground is as hard as a rock and walking 36 holes a day will make your feet throb. I wore some Ecco flat-bottomed shoes and they worked great. If I hs to do it over again, I would have changed socks between rounds.
To avoid the hassle of lugging my clubs, I also decided to use Ship Sticks to UPS my clubs. For me, this was the way to go. And I would definitely choose this option again.
Since Bandon is walking only, you can either take a caddie or carry your own bag. My partner and I decided to take a pro jock since we weren't on a tight budget. They tell you $80-$100 per bag is standard and our caddie carried doubles (and of course, being former caddies ourselves, we paid the upper end of that range). He was probably not as helpful as I would have expected (especially on the greens), but he had a lot of great stories and was just a really solid dude. At least he saved our legs a little bit. Taking a caddie is the way to go in my opinion, especially from a pace of play and course navigation perspective, but certainly not a necessity.
As no one else really ever cares to hear the play-by-play of your round, let me just say that the golf is pretty challenging, but very fair. The greens were pretty variable from course to course, with Trails easily having the best and Pacific the worst. I couldn't make a putt to save my life and it's not a place where you can play to dive the ball in the hole. You get a lot of tight lies so don't get too frustrated when you skull a wedge shot (it will probably happen). I found that my putter, 3i hybrid, and pitching wedge were most effective from the fringe. The fairways, in general, are forgiving and the ball rolls a long way downwind. These are broad generalizations and every course is really its own experience.
A couple of random words to the wise. Be sure to bring bug spray. I'm talking about the good stuff, because this place, especially Trails and Preserve, is currently overrun with an swarm of aggressive and large mosquitos. In fact, we know of several groups that thought they were bad enough not to play Trails at all. I think that's a little extreme, but I definitely got bit up a little bit. Also, sunscreen is still a good idea, even though it was overcast the entire time we were there.
Looking back, I'd say that Bandon Trails was probably my favorite course, but it can't match the sheer beauty of the other ones as it doesn't back up to the ocean. Old Mac was probably my least favorite, but honestly they are all pretty spectacular.
Can't think of anything else right now, but will revert back if I do. I'm happy to answer any questions if you have them.
