“The Chief” at Beebe Springs Nature Area

  • “The Chief” at Beebe Springs Nature Area 1

Take a minute to pull over at the Beebe Springs Nature Area to view the metal 3D sculpture of "The Chief" on horseback wearing a feathered headdress hoists a Columbia River salmon over his head. The sculpture was created by Virgil "Smoker" Marchand, a member of the Lakes Band of the Colville Confederated Tribes.

Other of his works can be spotted throughout Washington State including root diggers in Nespelem, lurking wolves at the Sherman Pass summit, spawning salmon at the old train depot museum in Oroville and in Spokane at Huntington Park overlooking Spokane Falls.
