Indian Battles of 18
Colfax Branch Library
Tuesday, Jun. 19 (Available for viewing 7 days per week during regular library hours.)

Images of “The Indian Battles of 1858” by Nona Hengen will be on display during the month of June at The Center at Colfax Library. The exhibit is comprised of 15 reproductions including “The Battle of Steptoe” and “Horse Camp Slaughter”, along with the continuous showing of two videos, “The Spokane Tribal Battles of 1858” produced by the Spokane Tribe and “Painting in the Details: Indian Wars of 1858” by Nona Hengen.

Well known in our region, Nona was inspired to paint this series more than 30 years ago when she was presenting a class about cultural conflicts. It was from her study of Manifest Destiny and the resulting Steptoe/Wright Campaign of 1858, that the large, colorful paintings were born.

Hengen is an artist, writer and teacher. As an artist, her interpretive canvases feature eastern Washington subject matters and scenery. As a writer, Nona has been featured in Wheat Life magazine, trade journals and has self-published 16 titles under “Palouse Press.” Hengen, was born and raised in the Spangle
