144 years after the Nez Perce were driven out of their homeland in the Wallowa Valley in Eastern Oregon, members of the tribe have returned to bless 148 acres of reclaimed land. After working for years to keep a connection to their ancestral land, the Nez Perce were able to purchase 148 acres of land known as Am’sáaxpa (Place of Boulders), in Joseph Oregon.
More than 150 people from the Nez Perce tribe rode to the newly reclaimed land to bless it on July 29, 2021.
