A glimpse into the decline of one of Oregon's now forgotten tribes.
This book takes a look specifically at the period between 1845-1857 in the lives of the Takelma Tribe of the Rogue River Valley, Oregon.
We take a look at not only race relations, the attitude and misuse of power by the United States government of the time, and the eventual removal of those remaining of the Takelma Tribe from the Valley.
That period was a significant time in both US history and that of Indigenous Peoples in Oregon. New settlements by citizens moving to the 'wild west' from all over. Discovery of gold and what mining operations brought to the area. The governments agenda to encourage growth for a nation barely out of infancy. The effects to the Takelma Peoples as part of numerous tribes that had existed in Oregon now consolidated due to treaties and a push by government to contain those opposing their movements and how hard the Takelma fought to keep their homes.
