Implications of Integrative Science Approaches for Site Documentation at Bia Ogoi
Deep in the Washington Territory amongst American expansionism, one of the nation’s most devastating conflicts occurred. On the frigid morning of January 29th 1863, the California Volunteers under the command of Patrick Connor attacked the Shoshone village at Bia Ogoi in response to ongoing hostilities between whites and Native groups, resulting in the death of at least 250 Shoshone and 21 soldiers. Over the course of the past 150 years, extensive landscape modification has occurred from both natural and human agents, obscuring the events of this fateful day. This poster presentation highlights an integrated science methodology to identify and record key landmarks including traditional on-the-ground geomorphic studies, historic cartographic reconstructions, and geophysical assay with implications for preservation at the Bear River Massacre Site.
