Doodlebug Story

Avista, in cooperation with the Spokane Tribe of Indians and the Washington State Historic Preservation Office, participated in the development of the Doodlebug story. This video was produced by the Spokane Tribe and consists of the creation story of the landscape surrounding Long Lake Dam, as introduced by Randy Abrahamson and narrated and illustrated by Spokane Tribal Elder Orten Ford. If you would like to visit the interpretive sign it is located at the Long Lake Dam overlook off Highway 291.
