Lewis County is a county in the U.S. state of Idaho. Partitioned from Nez Perce County and established in 1911, it was named after the explorer Meriwether Lewis. Located in the north central region of the state, its population was 3,821 at the 2010 census. The county seat is Nezperce, and Kamiah is the largest city.

Most of the county is within the Nez Perce Indian Reservation, though Native Americans comprise less than 6% of the county population.[1] Similar to the opening of lands in Oklahoma, the U.S. government opened the reservation for white settlement in November 1895. The proclamation had been signed less than two weeks earlier by President Cleveland.
