National Park Service revamps map detailing Chief Joseph’s flight

Orofino, Idaho (AP) July 2010

There’s a new map highlighting the 1,170-mile Nez Perce National Historic Trail outlining the route Chief Joseph and about 800 Nez Perce tribal members used in 1877 during their unsuccessful bid to reach Canada and avoid being confined to a reservation.

The $10 map – available at U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service offices – replaces the last Nez Perce National Historic Trail map, last revised 15 years ago.

In addition to showing important sites along the trail Chief Joseph and his band of non-treaty Nez Perce followed to flee the U.S. Cavalry, the map also shows boundaries of the land traditionally used by the tribe – and how that territory was altered by treaties of 1855 and 1863.

The historic trail includes 38 sites in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana and is considered sacred ground to many people.
