The Nez Perce: A People in Exile

From 2007 video archive: When Chief Joseph said he would “fight no more forever” at the battle of Bear Paw, he gave up his rifle, but not his way of life or his claim to his ancestral land. Today, nearly 130 years after the last great battle of the Nez Perce War, decendants of the Joseph’s band continue his struggle to preserve the old ways, including their spoken language.
