"His visit marks the first of any cast member from the film(s) to La Push."

I'd read before that Taylor Lautner visited there before.

I thought about that. In Twilight Movie Premieres, we learned that Lautner met some Quileute youths in Oregon. But I'm not sure he ever set foot on the Quileute reservation in Washington.

That is what I was remembering too. Thanks for the clarification.
