Tidbits of History

Omak, Washington is world renown for its rodeo, the Omak stampede. The Omak Stampede has gained fame for its performance dubbed the Suicide Race, which began with Native Americans years ago. The Native Americans camped along the Columbia River in late May to fish and prepare for the celebrations that would follow the Salmon harvest.

Every year when the necessity of storing up dried salmon for the winter was just a memory, a time of feasting, dancing, horse racing and performing would begin. All of the Native American tribes from the area would gather for a week of celebrating, renewing friendships and competitions in the countryside around Omak.

In the 1920’s Hugh McShane, a white man married to a Colville Indian woman, began to promote the Salmon Days as the Keller Rodeo. In addition to bronc and bull riding, McShane promoted the continuation of a thrilling and dangerous race that was then called, the mountain race.

The mountain race, now referred to as the suicide race, is only a half mile long. The first leg of the race begins as riders race down a steep boulder strewn chasm, from there riders race across the Sanpoil river and across the finish line in the Rodeo arena. The Suicide race soon became the main attraction as well as the crowd’s favorite part of the show. Despite its name though a long time Keller resident Henry Kuehne claims the original race was much more dangerous than the contemporary race by saying “[t]hat old race could really be a horse killer. Compared to it, the race they have today is pretty tame.”

Even More Tidbits of History
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.

    To date, I have not found a single soup from you that I don’t love! I have some auto-immune diseases that keep me from eating anything with tomato or potato in it, so I avoid those but not because they don’t taste amazing (I may have cheated and tried a few.) 😉
