Indian Chief

Indian Chief
One of the places we stopped on our way to Spokane, was at Beebe Springs Natural Area along the Columbia River. This an area where native tribes once dug Camas bulbs (shown below). There are sculptures there by the native artist, Smoker Marchand, this of an Indian on horseback and others of women digging Camas bulbs.

Nice to see how blue camas grows there. You can see why the bulbs were worth digging.
Our camas in the northern Trinity Alps is white and pops up as a solo act. As you know, it's poisonous. I had some bad moments back in the '70s when the nearby backpacking camp started taking kids out to "live off the land", using a paperback book which stated in the first chapter that "all lilies are edible."

Yikes. How stupid and ignorant of the book. That white Camas is not really a Camas at all, though its common name is Death Camas. There continue to be poisoning deaths from it, though, because the bulbs are indistinguishable from the edible Camas when the flowers are gone.
