Chief Joseph

Chief JosephA peaceful man, Chief Joseph was a beloved Nez Perce leader who worked to protect his people and their lands. When white settlers took their lands, he spent years talking to officials to no avail. When a few rebel warriors in his tribe attacked settlers, the government sent soldiers to hunt down and remove the Nez Perce from their home. In a chase that stretched over seventeen hundred miles, the U.S. Army pursued the tribe until it captured Chief Joseph. Despite surrendering and vowing to “fight no more forever,” Chief Joseph and his people were put in prison where many of them died.
