Klamath Reservation Invitational All-Indian Basketball Tournament Turns 60

Over the weekend the Klamath Reservation Invitational All-Indian Basketball Tournament was held for the 60th time on the Klamath Tribes Reservation in Chiloquin, Oregon. The gym was packed for all of the exciting men's and women's games, showing true March Madness spirit.

According to Native News Network, the birth of the Klamath Reservation Invitational All-Indian Basketball Tournament was in 1954. Prior to this date a local tournament was held on the Klamath Reservation for all local teams. From year to year the number of teams varied and one year ten teams were entered. The Chiloquin Townies under the capable direction of Sandy Miller consistently won the tournament. The committee was comprised of all local team managers. From time to time the committee had expressed their willingness to invite teams from other reservations. Then in the fall of 1953 the committee decided to invite four other teams for the following year. Those invited were from Warm Springs, Alturas, Ft. Bidwell, and Susanville. Today, 60 years hence, the tournament has grown into a major event, attracting teams from across the county and abroad.
