The Nez Perce (or the Nimiípu or Nee-Me-Poo) Trail stretches from Wallowa Lake, Oregon, to the Bear Paw Battlefield near Chinook. These people, who fed the starving Corps as they came down from the Rockies, introduced them to Indian nations down the Columbia River system, and cared for their horses over the winter of 1805-1806 were evicted from their homeland by the U.S. in 1877.
