Lillian Pitt Designs Pin to Commemorate
Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon

Internationally-recognized Portland artist, Lillian Pitt, has designed a pin in honor of the bicentennial of Lewis and Clark’s journey through Oregon. Pitt, of the Warm Springs and Yakama Tribes, created the image of the mythical Stick Indian in the center of the oblong pin, surrounded by the words “Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon” and the years of the expedition.

The Stick Indian, which is depicted with pursed lips, is a Columbia River Plateau tribal tradition called the “Little People” or “Unknown People” in the Ichishkiin language. Traditional stories place Stick Indians in the mountains, where they help lost hunters by whistling to lead them to safety. Always present, the Stick Indians look upon the activities of the tribe, reminding people to honor native traditions and maintain a favorable relationship with nature.

Design and production of the pin is sponsored by Tuality Healthcare, a non-profit community hospital serving Washington County. All proceeds from the sale of the pin will benefit the programs of Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon (LCBO). LCBO is a nonprofit organization dedicated to coordinating Oregon’s commemoration of the Corps of Discovery’s journey through Oregon two hundred years ago.


This is the official lapel pin produced by Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon (LCBO) to commemorate activities and legacy projects throughout the state. The pin is based on a bronze mask designed by Warm Springs artist, Lillian Pitt entitled Warm Springs Stick Indian.
