Massacre at Hells Canyon | Oregon Experience | OPB

Oregon Public Broadcasting

Hells Canyon is the site of what may be the worst massacre of Chinese people by white settlers in the United States.

Chinese immigrants helped build the West Coast of the United States, but they faced unprecedented legalized discrimination and violence. In 1887, a gang of Wallowa County, Oregon, men killed as many as 34 Chinese gold miners along the Snake River. For over a century, the murders were covered up, and no one was held accountable. This program delves into the mystery of what really happened at Chinese Massacre Cove and who was responsible.
