Preparing for a feast

A member of the Chehalis tribe cooks king salmon over an open fire near the Capitol.

OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee and Hyogo Prefecture Gov. Toshizo Ido had Kobe beef for lunch at the Executive Mansion. But food to be served after a mid-afternoon ceremony might have more of a cowboys and Indians motif.

Or maybe Puget Sound Native Americans and cattlemen.

Members of the Chehalis Tribe have been smoking king salmon all day in the lot south of the Capitol. In the early afternoon, the cattlemen arrived with large bags of charcoal and grills to cook up some beef.

The smell of cooking food, wafting all over the Capitol campus, is going to make it hard to get much work done this afternoon, Inslee said as he passed the salmon.
