Wallowa

Wallowa is the homeland of the Ne-mee-poo people, found in the Land of the Wandering Waters and revered by most who live there. It is mentioned frequently by characters such as Chief Joseph, Springtime, and Sound of Running Feet, who all love the place and feel intense sadness at having to leave it. Wallowa evokes melancholy and bitterness in the Ne-mee-poo, even prompting some warriors to declare that they would rather fight to the death than leave their beautiful land. The Red Coats are an example of the manifestation of this loyalty to Wallowa, as they desire to stay and fight rather than flee and resettle elsewhere. Wallowa's appeal is so strong that Springtime, rather than give birth on any other territory, chooses to risk her life and her baby's to give birth in Wallowa before crossing the river which would take her away from it.
