June 28, 1878 Battle of Silver River
Once again hostile whites launched an assault on an Anishinabe camp on Friday June 28, 1878. Historians claim that Battle of Silver River was a part of 1878s Bannock-Paiute War but it was just an extension of an 1877 Anishinabe exodus west to Idaho, Oregon and Washington, from probably southwest Montana. Battle of Silver River was a part of Mullan Road War. Above is a list of Mullan Road War battles. After finding location of an Anishinabe camp, white invaders commenced to trek to their camp but before they could do so a battle commenced between them and brave Anishinabe Soldiers. That battle was a minor one in which 5 Ojibways were killed and 2 wounded. White casualties were 3 killed and two wounded. Terrain was rugged and most likely Anishinabe People of that location (Battle of Silver River was fought 30 miles west of Burns, Oregon) fled into nearby mountains. Ogima Moses was actively fighting in this war. He was leading many Anishinabek to Oregon, Washington, and also up to British Columbia. After that battle, Umatilla allies of whites, attacked a camp where Anishinabek fled to but first commenced a talking with them then treacherously attacked them. They killed 14 Anishinabek. Ojibway People must not forget what them Umatilla People did. Ojibway People were probably moving to Malheur Reservation in eastern Oregon which at that time was quite large. Malheur Reservation was eradicated in 1882 and 1883 by corrupt American leadership that did not want Ojibway People dominating Malheur Reservation. Large numbers of Montana Ojibways forced their way to eastern Oregon, from southwest Montana. Burns or Harney (it was located on Malheur Reservation then), Oregon, is some 140 miles west of Boise, Idaho.
