The Shahaptin or Nez Perce people were a powerful Plateau tribe residing in many small bands on the borders of Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Fur traders frequently travelled in the area, so there were many opportunities to trade for cloth, metal weapons and other goods, glass beads, ribbon, guns, mirrors and many other items.

The Nez Perce were closely related to the Wanapums, Cayuses, Umatillas, Palouses, Klickitats, Yakimas and Walla Wallas, with whom they traded for furs and horses - particularly the much prized Appaloosas which were used for warfare.
