Description

The Oxcart Parade, a part of the 1914 Pageant of the Northwest, moves along the English Coulee. The parade features fur traders, Native Americans on horseback, oxcarts and oxen. 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.
