Tidbits of History - Omak
Omak, Washington is the largest town in Okanogan County and is world renown for its rodeo, the Omak Stampede. It is still a quaint little town with only about 4700 people living there and is close to the Colville Indian reservation. Local Indians gathered in the area during the salmon runs to harvest and dry their winter’s supply of fish. A favorite gathering place was at the junction of the Sanpoil and Columbia rivers, and eventually became the site of Old Keller. The people camped there late in May to fish and prepare for the celebrations that would follow the ending of salmon harvest. A time of feasting, dancing, and performing the traditional ceremonies. Horse racing was sure to be a component of any gathering of Native Americans.
When the necessity of storing up dried salmon for winter was just a memory, the tradition of meeting to celebrate, renew friendships and racehorses continued. In the 1920s, Hugh McShane, a white man married to a Colville Indian woman named Sadie Nee, began promoting Salmon Days as the Keller Rodeo. In addition to roping, bronco and bull riding, McShane encouraged the continuation of a thrilling and dangerous race called the mountain race.
The race was a half mile, down a nearly vertical, boulder-strewn chasm in the face of a mountain. From there the riders raced across a dry channel of the Sanpoil River and charged into the rodeo arena. It soon became the crowd’s favorite event. Long-time Keller resident Henry Kuehne recalled that original race was far more treacherous than anything seen in modern times, saying, “That old race could really be a horse killer. Compared to it, the race they have now is pretty tame.”
The mountain race, which is now known, world wide, as the suicide race, is performed every August as part of the Omak Stampede rodeo. It is a dangerous race that starts in the dark of the night with an all out race down a 200-foot embankment, which is almost a vertical drop. At the bottom of the hill, horse and rider must swim the Okanogan River before racing to the finish line in the rodeo arena. This is a controversial race but draws a crowd from around the world.

Legend has it that Tortellini was created as a tribute to Venus, the goddess of love. The legend states that when Venus stayed in a tavern on the outskirts of the city of Bologna, the innkeeper spied on her through the keyhole of her room, but could catch only a glimpse of her navel. Spellbound, he went to the kitchen and, to capture this vision, shaped fresh egg pasta into the navel-sized Tortellini. Tortellini remains one of Italy’s classic pastas and has become a favorite in America and around the world. Filled with a variety of flavorful ingredients it remains one of the essentials of Italian cuisine.
