In this episode Matt Crawford speaks with author Blaine Harden about his book Murder At The Mission. The story of missionaries forging west to the Oregon Territory in 1836 to convert the Nez Perce and Cayuse tribes would echo through American history through today. Harden details how a failed missionary and a harrowing trip to save his career would have a monumental impact on the Cayuse tribe and Native American relations writ large for years to come. A pivotal and important moment that needs to be discussed to understand our reprehensible relations with Native Americans and how far reaching and impactful the U.S governments actions were.
