After meeting with leaders of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, Colonel Wright set up camp on the banks of Latah Creek. He sent a message to the chiefs of the Spokane, Palouse, and Colville Tribes, which demanded that they must come to him and negotiate for peace. On September 25, 1885, over 100 chiefs from those tribes came into Wright’s camp, including Owhi, who had joined the Palouse warriors. Owhi was seized and put into irons. A few days later Qual Chan, his wife Whist-alks and brother Lo-Kout, rode into the camp under a white flag of truce. With confidence and dignity, Qual Chan asked to see Colonel Wright. The only official record of this meeting was in a report made by Col. Wright….”Qual Chan came to see me at 9 o’clock, at 9:15 he was hung”. From that day on Latah Creek has been called Hangman Creek.
