• LOCATION 8 | The Modoc War: A Homeland Lost

    On Crater Lake Parkway

    You should now be on Crater Lake Parkway. Stay on this for a bit. Strip away the road and the buildings. Imagine what the first non-Indians saw when they arrived. Sagebrush-covered lava plateaus divided by the Lost River and Tule Lake. The Modoc lived by that water, following semi-nomadic patterns that put them in the right place at the right time for hunting and fishing. They knew their land intimately, which made them highly capable warriors.
