Wallowa WA, Nez Perce Interpretive Center

We are right next to the Nez Perce Interpretive Center at our park here in Wallowa.  The Nez Perce Indians, were exiled to a reservation in Idaho so the white man could mine gold in 1860 in the Wallowa Valley.  A small piece of land next to us was returned to them.  They turned it into a gathering place which is open to the public.  They consider it a sacred and spiritual place.  Most of the Nez Perce perished on their forced trek to the reservation.

We face the Nez Perce land.
