Many European and American explorers came to the state of Idaho. Lewis and Clark explored the area in 1805. David Thompson enter the shores of Lake Pend Oreille in the 1809. Trappers and traders continued to sporadically make their way to the region throughout the first half of the century, along with many missionaries, mainly Jesuits, called “Kaniksu” (Black Robes in Indian). In the years after the fur trade, the Indians continued to camp on their travels at Sineacateen. The North West Company was not alone in trying to harvest furs in the Pacific Northwest. Hudson's Bay Company maintained a chain of posts throughout the region and absorbed its opponent in 1821. The fur trade continued into the 1840s, but its importance declined as the years went on. As more Europeans and Americans arrived, they displaced the Indian tribes that originally lived in the region.
