About

The Nixyáawii Neighborhood

The Umatilla Indian Reservation is the homeland of the Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla Tribes. The new Nixyáawii neighborhood is an opportunity for CTUIR Tribal Members to build, live, and enjoy their own homes in their own community.  Nixyáawii will sit on approximately twelve acres, and will be located southeast of the Nixyáawii Education Center and Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center.  Fifty shovel-ready residential lots will be available, and will include:

  • 99-year leases for a choice of lots between 4,000 and 6,800 square feet
  • Flexibility for the homeowner to build and own a home that suits their needs
  •  Paved streets and sidewalks
  • A community park and walking trails
  • A safe, walkable design with close proximity to CTUIR events and services at the Nixyáawii Governance Center, Nixyáawii Community School, and the Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center
  • Easy access to Kayak Public Transit
  • Access through alleyways behind each lot
  • Stubbed-out utility connections
  • Access to electricity through Pacific Power and fiber optic internet
  •  Space reserved for future neighborhood businesses and services


Lots will be available for 99-year leases in late 2021.
