They stored these foods in their permanent winter village, when crop activities waned, they returned to their winter villages and took up hunting and trading.

As the demographic pressure from the colonists grew, the remaining Kalapuyans were forcibly removed to reservations, though some Natives escaped being swept into the reservation, most were moved to the Grand Ronde reservation in 1856.
