    How did that happen?

    • The Camas requires a swampy area to grow. The settlers arrive and want grow wheat. The fields were drained. I don’t remember what spark the young warriors but they attack a white settlement. Chief Joseph lead the tribe through Idaho evading the Calvary until they reach Wyoming were the Calvary and killed a number of Indians. The Indians were headed to Canada and safety. Chief Joseph was reported to say “I will fight no more. One of our sad history. One the Nez Perce Indian is running for Governor.
