Nez Perce National Historical Park Aug 11, 2012
Nez Perce National Historical Park is a set of 38 sites spread across 4 states (Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington) celebrating the Nez Perce. It is a great way to learn about the Nez Perce and their customs and traditions.
We only went to the sites along the main road as I was passing through with small children:
Lolo Pass (see other review)
Heart of the Monster: A large mound of dirt where legend dictates that Coyote defeated a monster and created the Nimiipuu people. An audio player tells you the story while you look at the mound. There are also picnic tables nearby.
Canoe Camp: Place where Lewis and Clark stopped and made canoes to complete their journey to Oregon.
Spalding Visitors Center: Exhibit and museum talking about the Nez Perce people. My daughter also received her Junior Ranger here.
If you want to learn about the Nez Perce, this is definitely worth a visit.
