Another Time of Reflection at Bears Paw
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.

Wendell L. Davis
July 20, 1949 - November 13, 2014
Wendell Lee Davis, a true warrior and member of the Nez Perce Tribe, passed away on November 13, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Wendell was born in Orofino, Idaho. He was a long time community member of Kamiah, and a member of the Second Presbyterian Church.
In 1968, he graduated from Kamiah High School, and received his Associate’s Degree in Education from Bacone Junior College in Oklahoma. He also attended Eastern Oregon College in 1978.
During his life, Wendell was employed at Three Rivers Timber Company, Weyerhauser Lumber, Head Start, the National Forest Service, and the It’se Ye Ye Casino. He retired in 2013.
Hobbies included watching sports with his family, bowling, and working on the Nez Perce Trail projects. He took part in the annual Nez Perce Trail Foundation Summer Trip through Yellowstone in 2013, and enjoyed learning about his heritage and history.
Wendell is survived by his aunt Caron Spencer, Lapwai; sister Sandy Holt, Lapwai; sister Marci Bailey, Kamiah; daughter Frances Walker, Lapwai; son Winfred Davis, Oklahoma; and many nieces and nephews that he adored.
Services were held at the Wa A Yas Community Center, with burial at the Second Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Kamiah.
