The Visitor Center is not much. If you are from Idaho and drive this route a lot like I do, you should stop in, but you won’t see many artifacts at the Center and the walking trails, etc near there are not worth it. The one stop that is definitely worth it is 3/4 of the way up White Bird Grade. The view is magnificent, and the history evocative of the great struggle of the. Ez Perce people under Chief Joseph (Rolling Thunder).

The Nez Perce National Historical Park is spread out over 38 sites in 4 states. We only visited the park headquarters in Spalding, Idaho which contains a visitor center and museum, and hiking trails. The museum is small, but informative. A film about the Nez Perce tribe, “Of One Heart”, was played on demand in the theater in the visitor center. The film was very well done and I highly recommend watching it. There are also hiking trails behind the visitor center that lead to a few remaining buildings and sites, a cemetery that’s still in use, and a picnic area. You can hike or drive down to the trails. I never knew about the Nez Perce Indians, so this was an enlightening experience.

Every tribe’s artwork is very unique. The local tribes in the Nez Perce area are beautiful and much different than styles from my own tribe. The displays include quillwork too. This is only one of many sites to see. The National Park service offers a map of almost 30 Nez Perce sites in Idaho. The tribes used to live in the area that covers 4 states: WA, OR, ID and MT. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

There's free maps, lots of fancy books in the gift shop, and the ranger I spoke with was really knowledgeable. There's a small gallery and a 15-minute video on preserving the language that's informative and moving.
