some of are struggles were that some of the kids freezing to death,the chiefs were killed. some people had to run to the top of hills without any food or blankets , the old men died ,and we have no blankets.
The westward expansion was bad for us because the soldiers were following us and the U.S government were forcing them into reservation.

Some important facts were They tried not to have war with the soldiers, the soldiers were following them, Ended up at the reservation and chief joseph wanted to visit his father grave but he could not.
