Who Was Chief Joseph?

With 2,000 U.S. soldiers in pursuit, Chief Joseph and other Nez Perce chiefs led 800 Nez Perce toward freedom at the Canadian border. For over three months, the Nez Perce outmaneuvered and battled their pursuers, traveling 1,700 miles (2,740 km) across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. Finally, Chief Josephless than 40 miles south of Canada, after a devastating five-day battle during freezing conditions with no food or blankets, Chief Joseph formally surrendered on October 5th, 1877. The battle is remembered in popular history by the words attributed to Chief Joseph at the formal surrender:

“Tell General Howard I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart. I am tired of fighting... Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”

                                             We respect and honor Chief Joseph - and the fate of his people.

         It does not require many words to speak the truth.     -- Chief Joseph
