Nez Perce Trail Foundation
In the summer of 1877, bands of the Nez Perce Tribe (Nee-Me-Poo) defended themselves in a protracted military campaign with the United States government. The campaign lasted four months, beginning in Oregon and Idaho, and culminating with the surrender of many Nez Perce at the Bear's Paw Battlefield in Northern Montana. The route the Nez Perce followed from Oregon to Montana was designated as the Nez Perce National Historic Trail (Public Law 99-445) by the U.S. Congress on October 6, 1986.
