Marker of Qualchan Hanging Site, 2013

This huge stone memorial is located where the tree that was used to kill Qualchan once stood. It was erected by the Spokane County Pioneers Association in 1935 to commemorate the spot of Qualchan's death and of the treaty signing near by. This marker shows the importance of Qualchan's death and the subsequent ceasing of guerilla activities against US forces, which signaled and end to hostilities in the region. Soon, Indian lands in Eastern Washington would be opened to all white settlers witht he passing of th eIndian Appropriations Act of 1871.
