Native Americans in Northeastern Oregon
By Eugene B. Hayes
According to the late Cyrus Wilkinson, a Nez Perce man I knew in the 1960’s, the Nez Perce, Cayuse, and Umatilla tribes hunted up the Minam River to the high Wallowa Mountains for two months in the fall. The men took the meat back for the winter months, which were spent in the low-elevation Imnaha and Grand Ronde River basins, where the climate was milder. Some groups traveled from Troy and Wildcat Creek to Promise and Wallowa, where fishing was good, for the summer.
For a time Mr. Wilkinson lived in the town of Joseph, where he worked at the local sawmill. He died in Lapwai, Idaho, in 1988.
