In Custody Camas County Idaho

The county of Camas County is located in Idaho's southern region. The county had 1,117 residents as of the 2010 census, making it Idaho's second-least populous county. It was established as a county on February 6, 1917. Fairfield serves as the county seat. The camas root, or Camassia, a lily-like plant with an edible bulb found in the area and used as a food source by both Native Americans and settlers, is the basis of the county's name. Camas County is named for the camassia, a lily-like plant with an edible bulb, which is native to the area.

Camas County

The county was created on February 6, 1917, when Blaine County was divided by the Idaho Legislature. It is named from the edible bulb of the camas root, also known as Camassia, a lily-like plant used as a food source by early settlers and Native Americans in the area. The county had 1,077 residents as of the 2020 census, making it the second-least populous in the state behind Clark County.

The Camas Prairie has been inhabited by native people for more than 11,000 years. In order to gather camas and yampa for their winter food store, the Shoshoni, Northern Piute, and Nez Perce journeyed yearly to the Camas Prairie. By 1820, explorer Donald Mackenzie had found the Camas Prairie, and the region had gradually gained significance as a route. Beginning in 1852, military escorts for wagon trains traveling to Oregon used the Camas Prairie route. In honor of Timothy Goodale, who carried immigrants through the Camas Prairie for the first time in 1862, the path was eventually dubbed Goodale Cutoff. The southern part of the Camas Prairie served as an important horse grazing area when the cavalry was stationed at Fort Boise.

A treaty that was confirmed by the US Senate in 1869 allowed the Bannock Indians to keep a piece of the "Kansas Prairie" rather than the "Camas Prairie." The individual who typed the treaty may have committed the error. Idaho has no "Kansas Prairie," so the Bannocks' treaty rights were disregarded. A significant factor in the Bannock War of 1878 was their objections to a few settlers who were letting their hogs eat the camas root, which was a customary food source for the Bannocks.
