History Camas Prairie has a rich and diverse history that dates back thousands of years. The area has been inhabited by various Native American tribes, including the Nez Perce, who have lived in the region for over 10,000 years. The camas flower, which is a significant plant species in the region, was a crucial food source for the Nez Perce Tribe. The camas bulbs were harvested by the Nez Perce women and were used as a staple food source during the spring and early summer months. In the early 1800s, European-American fur trappers and traders began to explore and settle in the region, leading to conflicts with the Native American tribes. The most notable of these conflicts was the Nez Perce War of 1877, which resulted in the removal of the Nez Perce Tribe to reservations in Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Camas Prairie became a center for agriculture, with farmers cultivating wheat, barley, and other crops in the fertile soil of the region. The arrival of the railroad in the late 1800s helped to further develop the region’s economy, with towns such as Grangeville, Cottonwood, and Kamiah becoming important centers for trade and commerce. Today, Camas Prairie remains an important agricultural region, with farmers continuing to grow a variety of crops. The area is also a popular destination for outdoor recreation, with opportunities for hiking, fishing, hunting, and camping.
