The arrival of unprecedented numbers of Oregon Trail immigrants stirred a cataclysmic upheaval that placed native people's retention of lands and their ancient customs in jeopardy. On May 29, 1855, the Walla Walla Treaty Council commenced and two weeks later, Chief Kamiakin signed the Yakima Treaty of 1855 with great reluctance. He also resolved to resist threats to his people's freedoms and transgressions on their lifeways. Finding Chief Kamiakin is his saga. Fine.
