Camas Lily - Vegetable & Medicine Plant

Camas Lily - Vegetable & Medicine Plant
"In September 1805, during the camas harvest at Weippe Prairie, located near Lewiston, Idaho, the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery first encountered the Nez Perce. The Corps had just completed the grueling journey over the Bitterroot Mountains and were out of food and exhausted. The Nez Perce fed them camas, among other foods, and many historians believe that the expedition would have failed without this assistance."
