TV show visits Klamath for episode on Modoc Wars

Klamath Falls, Oregon (AP) May 2010

The Public Broadcasting System show “History Detectives” was in the upper Klamath Basin during May filming a segment on the Modoc Wars, the last armed conflict between Indians and the U.S. Army in Oregon and California.

The show is tracing the origins of a basket woven by Toby “Winema” Riddle, a Modoc woman who married a white settler and is known for warning Gen. Edward Canby of a plot to kill him.

The Herald and News reports the show’s host, Wes Cowan, visited local experts and sites associated with the conflict, including the volcanic formation that served as a stronghold for the Indians.

The fighting broke out in 1872 when members of the Modoc tribe refused to leave their homeland and go to a reservation.
