Learn about the massacre of over 30 Chinese miners in 1887 in “Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon.” It recounts the events of the massacre from when the bodies were first discovered to the subsequent trial of six men and boys — the youngest being 15 – over a year later. During this time, witnesses admitted to have little interest in convicting anyone for crimes against Chinese immigrants and they were found not guilty by a jury. A cover-up followed and the massacre was soon forgotten over the next 100 years until a Wallowa County clerk found the hidden records in an unused safe. Author R. Gregory Nokes, explores the details of the trial and what is says about the experience of Chinese immigrants living in the Pacific Northwest.
