“Place for Racing”

T"nt"nmi, was one of the last Coeur d'Alenes to leave permanent residence along the lake, after tribal members were assigned farm homes under the Allotment Act.
At Hnpetptqwe'n, he hosted regular gatherings and celebrations, where guests participated in races toward the lake, on foot or on horseback.

Tribal members, in return for allowing the railroads to be built in their territory, were guests on trains.
Many traveled in this manner back to the lake for food gathering, recreation or work.
Women were notably present during ice-fishing season.
During the winter some Indian farmers loaded their horses onto boxcars and traveled to the landings, where they cut cordwood for the steamboats.
