Smat-Lowit's Story of the Yakima War: 1855.
"I will tell you my story of the Yakima war; which started in the Selah. ( ) Selah is an Indian name and applies to the spot along the rail road crossing above the Selah Cap. I do not know its meaning. At this time, I, Smat-louit; chiefs' Toyayas, Owhi and Kamiakun, were stopping in the Moxee, across the river from North Yakima, and towards the upper hills. Owhi's son Qalchin was away off in the mountains, between now Fort Simcoe and Goldendale. He was watching the trail for government soldiers who were reported coming. He saw them, a whole bunch of them armed with guns and coming on horses."
