Tolo Lake

Five non-treaty Nez Perce bands gathered at Tolo Lake In early June of 1877. The wornen dug and gathered camas bulbs. The young men were doubtless racing their horses. Some old people were gambling. Children were playing their games. This gathering was a time for preparing the winter food supply, but It was also a time for visiting, chatting and gossiping with friends and relatives of the other bands. Over seven hundred people were camped around Tolo Lake during the early summer days of that year.
