Northern Paiutes of the Malheur—High Desert Reckoning in Oregon Country

Thursday, March 16 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Museum of Natural and Cultural History
1680 E 15th Avenue, Eugene, OR

Following the 1878 Bannock War, the U.S. government stripped Paiutes of their ancestral lands and reservation. For more than a century, a false narrative has blamed Paiute Chief Egan for inciting the war. Join author David Wilson as he reveals government officials' misinformation campaign blaming the Paiutes for the injustices they suffered at the hands of these men.

Book signing to follow the talk. Copies of Northern Paiutes of the Malheur—High Desert Reckoning in Oregon Country will be available in the museum store.
