The Nez Perce[]

The Nez Perce are an Indigenous people of the Plateau who are presumed to have lived on the Columbia River Plateau in the Pacific Northwest region for at least 11,500 years, covering parts of present-day Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho. Prior to first contact with Western civilization the Nimiipuu were economically and culturally influential in trade and war, interacting with other indigenous nations in a vast network from the western shores of Oregon and Washington, the high plains of Montana, and the northern Great Basin in southern Idaho and northern Nevada.


Chief Joseph, known by his native tongue name Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt, or by Joseph the Younger, was a leader of the Wal-lam-wat-kain band of Nez Perce, a Native American tribe of the interior Pacific Northwest region of the United States, in the latter half of the 19th century. He succeeded his father Tuekakas, known as Joseph the Elder. He led his band of Nez Perce during the most tumultuous period in their history, when they were forcibly removed by the United States federal government from their ancestral lands in the Wallowa Valley of northeastern Oregon onto a significantly reduced reservation in the Idaho Territory.

Dawn of Man[]

"Blessings, Chief Joseph, leader of the Nez Perce! Your people, who call themselves the Nimiipuu, live mainly in the State of Idaho in the U.S. A hard-working people, with a knack for cultivating and conserving nature, you made a name for yourselves during the birth of the United States. When the Americans drove you from your lands, you showed that your principles of loyalty and dignity were unshakable even in the most desperate and unfair of times.

Now again, Chief Joseph, we look to you. Lead our people through uncertain and unknown lands. Show the strength of our principles, as we renew our people again. Guide us as we in turn guide our people, who will stand the test of time."

Introduction: "Greetings. I am Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce. Let us enjoy the food and fish of my people."

Introduction: "Welcome, stranger. These are the lands where we have always lived and subsisted."

Defeat: "I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed.  The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say no."
