    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, 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
