“learn about Nez Perce culture”
Created to honor all who were shot at the sleeping camp of Nez Perce. Almost 90 Nez Perce were dead along with 31 soldiers and volunteers. The people associated with this park and the events that took place on the Big Hole Battlefield are inextricably tied to the natural resources in the area; it is impossible to separate them. If the area did not contain natural resources—fish, elk, camas, lodgepole pine, grasses, water, minerals, and fertile soil—the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) would not have come to the area. Intimate familiarity with and use of natural resources led to the development of Nez Perce culture. An understanding of the cultural ties to the natural resources and an understanding of the landscape during the battle is critical to the management and interpretation of this park.
You can feel the history here. This was an amazing trip.
