The Heart of the Monster, the birthplace of the Nez Perce is here.
According to American Indian folklore, during the prehuman animal years a great monster was devouring all the animals. Coyote, the legendary chief animal of this age, slew the monster, cut him into many pieces and scattered these bits to the four winds. Legend has it that where each piece of the monster landed, a new Indian tribe arose. The Nez Perce tribe arose from drops of blood from the monster's heart.
