Presented by Nate Pedersen, historian and writer
This presentation will be an investigation into the life and times
of Chief Paulina, a Northern Paiute war leader who violently resisted Euro-American
settlement in the Great Basin and for several years orchestrated a successful
guerrilla war campaign in the deserts and mountains of eastern Oregon. After
attacking Burnt Ranch on the John Day River, a posse of settlers hunted down
Paulina and his band and Paulina was shot and killed in a cove near Ashwood,
Oregon in 1867. Who exactly killed Paulina remains a mystery to this day...
