native american offerings on memorial stick - captain jack's stronghold

Wooden memorial stick with Native American offerings on the site of Captain Jack's Stronghold, in the Lava Beds National Monument (California).­

This unofficial indigenous memorial commemorates an episode of the Modoc war, where a small Native American band led by Modoc chief "Captain Jack" resisted a large organized army force, before being eventually taken and killed.­ The natives used the natural features of the lava beds to defend their stronghold.­
