By 1877, the Nez Perce leader, Chief Joseph, became disgusted by the broken treaty promises of the US Government. Rather than continue to fight a superior force, he decided to join Sitting Bull in Canada. In just over 3 months Joseph led his 700 Nez Perce, 500 of which were women, old men and children, nearly 1500 miles, from Oregon to Montana, traversing some of the roughest terrain in North America on their little Appaloosas.
