Storyboard Text

  • Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe was a strong leader in the struggle to keep the Native American homeland.
  • Chief Joseph met with Federal Commissioners to discuss a false treaty in which the Nez Perce tribe supposedly gave up their land to the government. This negotiation was ignored and the natives' land was taken away.
  • The treaty is obviously fraudulent. Our people have never agreed to leave our land. 
  • Too bad!
  • Despite being instructed to move the tribe onto a reservation by President Grant, Chief Joseph was pressured by his tribesmen to resist and fight back.
  • We need to fight back to protect our land!
  • After realizing that there was no way to win, Chief Joseph and his followers withdrew from fighting and fled towards Canada.
  • After Chief Joseph led his followers into Montana in the fall of 1877, they were ambushed by 600 soldiers and never made it to Canada.
  • After the surviving tribes-people were freezing with no supplies left, Chief Joseph surrendered. The land of the Nez Perce tribe had been unjustly taken over by American settlers.
  • Our land is gone...
  • I will fight no more forever.
