The Nez Perce Story class will cover:
- Traditional Plateau Indian culture and the impacts of white arrivals: disease, horses, fur trade, missionaries, settlers, and miners. This will take us up to the War of 1877.
- Immediate events preceding the War — Treaties of 1855, 1863, and Grant’s proposed division of the Wallowa Country in 1873. Some but not too much attention to the war itself; this is covered in numerous books and articles.
- The war’s aftermath, From Bear’s Paw to Indian Territory, and from Indian Territory back to the Northwest — but not to Oregon. Where and how the Nez Perce people live today; three reservations, a National Historical Park and the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland.
