Nez Perce Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Nez Perce language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Nez Perce tribe and their society. Please note that Nez Perces and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Nez Perce history is interesting and important, but the Nez Perce Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
