Chief Redheart Memorial Ceremony

Calendar Date:

Nez Perce Tribe member on horseback

Join us for the 20th Annual Memorial Ceremony to remember Chief Redheart's band, including singing in honor of Nez Perce ancestors, the Riderless Horse Ceremony, the Sacred Pipe Ceremony and recognition of our veterans.

Each year Nez Perce tribal members travel to sites important in their history to conduct traditional memorials like this one.

After the ceremony, the public is encouraged to attend a traditional Native American meal, prepared and served by the Northwest Indian Veterans Association at the Artillery Barracks at 600 E. Hathaway Road.

There is no charge for admission to this event but donations are welcome. Refreshments at the ceremony have been generously provided by Meals on Wheels People.
