Big Hole Battlefield Wants More Culture

The Big Hole National Battlefield is southeast of the Bitterroot Valley, over Chief Joseph Pass. It’s where a band of Nez Perce, under the leadership of Chief Joseph, fought off the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry and area volunteers. The army was trying to get them back to a reservation in Idaho and Chief Joseph was trying to lead his people up to Canada. In the cavalry attack, Nez Perce lost their lives and 31 soldiers and volunteers died. (There are gravestones for some of the volunteers at the Corvallis cemetery.)

The battlefield has cultural demonstrations throughout the year, and is looking for more “cultural demonstrators” to share their stories and skills with the public.

One of the major events they have is called the Coyote Camp in May, along with the Summer Speaker Series in July and August. Money is available to pay for mileage, per diem and honorarium.

You can get an application by contacting (406) 689-3155 or e-mail them at:

BIHO_Visitor_Information@nps.gov

All applications must be received by March 15 of this year.
