    Lawney L. Reyes ~ Confederated Colville Tribes


    Life Reyes’ mother, born Mary Christian, was Sin Aikst (now known as the Sinixt and historically as the Senjextee and also as “the Lake”, now one of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation); his father, Julian Reyes, was Filipino, but had largely assimilated to an Indian way of life. His mother’s father, Alex Christian, was known as Pic Ah Kelowna, “White Grizzly Bear”; his great uncle (brother of his maternal grandmother) was Chief James Bernard, a Sin Aikst leader in the early 20th century.
