Lodge 442 is part of Section W-1S

 

Lodge 442, named Hyas Chuck Kah Sun Klatawa - "Great River Flowing to the West" (the Columbia River) - was first chartered in 1950.

The lodge changed its name to Skyloo - "Land of the Mountain Sun" - in 1960.

Skyloo merged with lodge 259, Cole Snass Lamatai (Lenni Lenape for "Snow Mountain Lodge," for Mt. Jefferson) in 1994, forming Wauna La-Mon'tay ("River and Mountain," referring to the Columbia River, largest in the West, and to Mount Hood, the highest mountain in Oregon).  Another translation for Wauna La-Mon'tay is that it's the name of the Spirit in the Columbia Gorge.

The three names of Lodge 442 - Hyas Chuck Kah Sun Klatawa, Skyloo, and Wauna La-Mon'tay - are in the Chinook language.  The Chinook are a large tribe in the Pacific Northwest, and much of the area's history derives from them.  The Chinook finally gained their recognition by the U.S. federal government as a Tribe in January 2000.

Cole Snass Lamatai was formed in 1944 - giving our lodge a history since then.
