Unit III: Victor and Alexander Period, 1840-1870

Diplomacy guided the tribes as they worked to protect their interests while keeping the peace with an expanding white population. Greedy white whiskey traders and unkept promises by the United States government complicated life for Salish and Pend d’Oreille leaders. Includes a gallery of pencil portraits of Salish, Pend d’Oreille, and Iroquois leaders in western Montana during the 1850s period.
