At the heart of every culture are the stories and places that sustain them as a people. For the Nez Perce, these stories taught children about the landforms that surround them everyday and help them learn their language, history and culture. The Nez Perce homeland is filled with unique and special places that since the beginning of time have defined who they are. As you drive through the unique topography of Nez Perce country, keep in mind that many of the prominent landmarks you see more than likely have a story attached to them.
Ant and Yellowjacket and Coyote's Fishnet are on Hwy 95, very close to the park's visitor center in Spalding, Idaho. Heart of the Monster is located approximately 55 miles east of the visitor center on Hwy 12 just outside of the town of Kamiah.
