The Journey of the Resilient Niimiipuu Nez Perce People Exhibit

Thu Oct 18 2018 - Mon Dec 31 2018, 8:00 AM - 8:00 AM

The story of the Niimiipuu (Nez Perce) people stretches out across the landscape.  It is embedded in places, names, and traditions.  The Niimiipuu have faced many challenges over the past 150 years.  Their history is one of disturbance, loss, and upheaval.  But it is also one of resolve, adaptability, and strength.  This exhibit chronicles the journey of the Niimiipuu and offers a glimpse into the living culture of the Niimiipuu today.

The exhibit is on loan from the Ravalli County Museum & Historical Society and was developed with support from the Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) National Historic Trail / USDA Forest Service, the Nez Perce Tribe Cultural Resources Program, Nimiipuu Language Program, and Niimiipuu Elders, Bitter Root Cultural Heritage Trust, First Security Bank, and the Jane S. Heman Foundation.
