2017 NPTF Summer Educational Trail Tour students visit The Confluence Circle along the Snake River. This area was blessed by Nez Perce elders as a sacred site, and was the former homeland of Chief Timothy's band. It was designed by Maya Lin, who also designed the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC.

NEZ PERCE TRAIL FOUNDATION

Official Partner of the NPNHT

The support of the Nez Perce National Historic Trail, designated by Congress on October 6, 1986, is a major activity of the Nez Perce Trail Foundation. The Trail route is 1,170 miles long, beginning at Wallowa Lake, Oregon, and ending at the Bear Paw Battleground in Montana. The Nez Perce Trail Foundation is dedicated to the preservation, protection, and commemoration of all aspects of the heritage of the Nez Perce War of 1877 and its aftermath. A significant Foundation goal is to have the Nez Perce route available to auto travel, hiking, and equestrian use for experiencing the history, recreational and ceremonial observances.
