Fettuccine Forum: The Second Nez Perce War
Please join the Boise City Department of Arts & History at the June 6, 2019 Fettuccine Forum, The Second Nez Perce War: Treaty Rights, Fishing and the Rapid River Conflict, where Professor Amy Canfield of Lewis-Clark State College will explore the Rapid River Conflict.
In 1979 and 1980, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game closed fishing on Rapid River in Central Idaho due to an expected low number of salmon. The Nez Perce Nation challenged this closure, citing treaty rights and tribal sovereignty. The resulting standoff between the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and members of the Nez Perce Nation, as well as the subsequent trial for arrests made during the standoff, demonstrate larger issues of legal rights and misunderstandings of tribal treaty rights by non-tribal members. This presentation will examine the standoff, its effects on the tribe, and its symbolism in terms of ongoing discussions about conservation and traditional uses.
