The Oxcart Parade, a part of the 1914 Pageant of the Northwest, moves along the banks of the English Coulee. The parade features fur traders on horseback and walking along side oxcarts and Native Americans with the travoises. The smokestack of Chandler Hall can be seen in the top of the picture. The Pageant of the Northwest was written by eighteen students under the supervision of Orin G. Libby and Fredrick Koch. The pageant employed several students and a few Native American extras to portray the four successive stages of the exploration of the Northwest.
