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.
