      Chief Joseph, Nez Pierce, 1901... This type of photograph always puzzles me. The artist probably wanted to take the picture because he believed that in just a few short years Native Americans would have dissappeard completely, or been assimilated. But they didn't/weren't so what we have is a staged photo presenting what the white artist believed was the important preservation image of a Native American...fascinating really.

      Chief Joseph of the Nez Pierce tribe of the American Northwest was a man perfectly placed to keep his tribe from total annihilation. His story is one of the saddest accounts of late 1800s / early 1900s America. Repeatedly lied to by the US Government and having their reservation changed because gold was discovered on the original reservation, he tried to move his people to Canada, declaring in the end that "My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever."

    Chief Joseph, Nez Perce After leading what is called the last great battle of a nation of Native Americans v. US Government, he also had this famous quote: “From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever.” The Nez Perce once roamed peacefully over nearly 17 Million Acres of Northwest Territory. Many people say he died of a broken heart after living on a reservation for two decades. RIP Chief Joseph
