Description

In 1887, a gang of horse thieves murdered as many as 34 Chinese gold miners in Hells Canyon, Oregon. Learn more about how, 100 years later, the rediscovery of this crime has brought new attention to the mistreatment of Chinese miners and railroad builders in the Pacific Northwest.

Speaker R. Gregory Nokes has traveled the world as a reporter and editor. He is author of two non-fiction Northwest histories: “Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon in 2009” and “Breaking Chains: Slavery on Trial in the Oregon Territory in 2013.”
