|“||Located in modern-day south-central Oregon, the Klamath people were quite successful at living off the myriad of resources provided by the rivers, lakes, and lands of their territory. Extremely resourceful, the Klamath had a diet including over forty different species of mammals and fowl. They hunted with bow and arrow, nets, and nooses, and feasted upon an abundance of plants, seeds, and shellfish.|
The Klamath lived in relative seclusion for thousands of years until 1826, when Peter Skeen Ogden - a fur trapper for the Hudson’s Bay Company - arrived in Oregon. More white settlers soon followed. After a few skirmishes, the treaty of 1864 moved the Klamath to a reservation. Inevitably, the culture of the Klamath changed, but their resourcefulness and ingenuity helped them to prosper for decades - in fact, during the 1950s they were one of the richest tribes in the entire U.S.
The Klamath were a very spiritual people. Crater Lake (known to the Klamath as “giwas”) held a special place in their spiritual lives and was a common destination for spirit quests, The lake was considered a dangerous realm, with spirits supposedly lurking in the depth and humans and mysterious animals inhabiting the lake floor.
