Get this from a library! Prophetic worlds: Indians and whites on the Columbia Plateau. [Christopher L Miller] -- Partial summary: Includes information on the Flathead/Nez Perce delegation to St. Louis. Columbia Plateau is a region covering more than , square miles (, sq km) in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

NATIVE ARTS OF COLUMBIA PLATEAU: DORIS SWAYZE BOUNDS COLLECTION By Susan E. Harless - Hardcover **Mint Condition**. From the river valleys of interior British Columbia south to the hills of northern Oregon and east to the continental divide in western Montana, hundreds of cliffs and boulders display carved and painted designs created by ancient artists who inhabited this area, the Columbia Plateau, as long as seven thousand years sing a vital social and spiritual dimension in the lives of these.
The Plateau people occupied a challenging environment. Summers were hot and windy; winters were cold and windy. The lodges to shelter human activities thus varied from pole-frame, mat-covered summer encampments to semisubterranean pit houses, framed with a cone of rafters covered with brush and earth to provide a refuge from the icy cold, snow, and darkness of winter. The Columbia River Basin is a triangular area measuring approximately miles on each side. On its fringes the elevation of the plateau is about 4, feet (1, m) above sea level, and at its lowest point it is about feet ( m). The plateau was formed somewhere between 6 million and 16 million years ago.

In his book Indian Rock Art of the Columbia Plateau, archaeologist James Keyser reports: “During this time, pit house villages become commonplace, roots, salmon, and shellfish were the primary good sources for Columbia Plateau groups.” Long-distance trade also increased.
Wood- and bone- working became more important. The Columbia Basin/Plateau Region roughly corresponds to the brownish area in this map. But first, some background.
A few years ago, I was asked to contribute a short article on clastic dikes to a book on the natural history of the Walla Walla Valley. The Columbia Plateau, also known as the Columbia Basalt Plain, is the prominent geographic feature of the interior Columbia River Basin.
The plateau formed between 6 million and 16 million years ago as the result of successive flows of basalt. Its northern border is marked by the Columbia River and the mouth of the Okanagon River. This evidence suggests that a concentrated heat source is melting rocks at the base of the lithosphere underneath the Columbia Plateau province.
Although scientists are still gathering evidence, a probable explanation is that a hot spot, an extremely hot plume of deep mantle material, is rising to the surface beneath the Columbia Plateau Province.
In his provocative ethnohistory, Christopher Miller offers an innovative reinterpretation of relations between Native Americans and Christian settlers on the Columbia Plateau. Miller draws on a wealth of ethnographic resources to show how culturally-derived perceptions and systems of rationality played more of a determining role in the interactions between these two groups than did material.
