The development of Christian civilization in the Oganogan and the Central and upper Columbia Valleys took root in 1811, when Fort Okanogan was built. These years, from 1811 to the present, may be divided into two historical eras. The first one saw the establishment of Fort Okanogan and Colville; the planting and the spreading of the Christian faith; the Kettle Falls of the Columbia River and St. Francis Regis in the Colville' it saw also the open encroachments on the Indian's lands, the uncertain United States Indian policies in action, and the Indian wars and their repercussions in eastern Washington.
