Description :


"In "Saga of Chief Joseph," Helen Addison Howard has written the definitive biography of the great Nez Perce chief, a diplomat among warriors. In times of war and peace, Chief Joseph exhibited gifts of the first rank as a leader for peace and tribal liberty. Following his people's internment in Indian Territory in 1877, Chief Joseph secured their release in 1885 and led them back to their home country. Fiercely principled, he never abandoned his quest to have his country, the Wallowa Valley, returned to its rightful owners. The struggle of the Nez Perces for the freedom they considered paramount in life constitutes one of the most dramatic episodes in Indian history. This completely revised edition of the author's 1941 version (titled War Chief Joseph) presents in exciting detail the full story of Chief Joseph, with a reevaluation of the five bands engaged in the Nez Perce War, told from the Indian, the white military, and the settler points of view. Especially valuable is the reappraisal, based on significant new material from Indian sources, of Joseph as a war leader. The new introduction by Nicole Tonkovich explores the continuing relevance of Chief Joseph and the lasting significance of Howard's work during the era of Angie Debo, Alice Marriott, and Muriel H. Wright."--Provided by publisher.

Description :


Chief Joseph (1840-1904) became a legend due to his heroic efforts to keep his people in their homeland in Oregon's Wallowa Valley despite a treaty that ordered them onto a reservation in Idaho. In 1877, when the US army forced the Nez Percé away from their lands, Joseph led his tribespeople on a 1,500-mile, four-month flight from western Idaho across Montana, through Yellowstone National Park and Wyoming, toward safety in Canada. During this journey, the Army attacked the Indians several times; in one battle alone, at the Big Hole in western Montana, ninety Indian men, women, and children were killed. The Nez Percés' flight ended at the Bear's Paw mountains in northern Montana, just forty miles from the safety of the Canadian border. There the Army surrounded the Nez Percé, captured their horses, killed all but two of their primary chiefs, and forced their capitulation. When Chief Joseph surrendered to military leaders he told them, "From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever." Promised by military commanders that they would be returned to Idaho, the Nez Percés were instead relocated to Indian Territory in Oklahoma where many died of fever and disease. Chief Joseph began a new fight-for better conditions for his people and the right to return to their home country. His diplomacy and eloquence won public support and ultimately resulted in the Nez Percé's return to Idaho and Washington.

Description :


"Chief Joseph: A Biography" explores the world of the Nez Perce Indians from their entrance into the Columbia Plateau through their relations with the expanding United States. It recounts their attempt to accommodate the rapidly changing world around them, and it follows the life of Chief Joseph, one of their greatest peace leaders. Readers will learn how interactions with Lewis and Clark at the beginning of the 19th century and the subsequent duplicity of white settlers and their government radically changed the Nez Perce way of life--and influenced Joseph's rise. Separating the real Chief Joseph from the myths that have grown around him, the book shows how he shepherded the Nez Perce people through the ordeals that confronted them, including the loss of their land and freedom and the persistent threats to the culture that had guided the Nez Perce for centuries.

Description :


Site 45-DO-326 is a rockshelter on the south bank of the Columbia River about 100 m upstream from River Mile 559. Vegetation is characteristic of the Upper Sonoran life zone. The University of Washington excavated 89 sq m (12.5%) of site volume in 1979 for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, as part of a mitigation program associated with adding 10 ft to the operating pool level behind Chief Joseph Dam. A systematic sample of 1 x 1-m units was laid out in the area outside of the rockshelter and an elongate block excavation was undertaken within the area of the basalt erratics. Four zones of cultural occupation were defined within a complex stratigraphic record about 1.5 m in depth. Radiocarbon dates and diagnostic projectile point types document at least 5,000 years of cultural activity spanning all three cultural phases defined for the Rufus Woods Lake project area. The rockshelter was maintained as a hunting base camp during the latter part of the Kartar Phase (ca. 5000-4000 B.P.).

Description :


On-site examination, mapping and photographing was supplemented by archival research, informant interviews and study of historical documents. Two sites, 45-OK-182H (Blackburn Homestead) and 45-DO-202H (Condon Ferry) required subsurface investigation. Of particular interest were buildings, recognizable concentrations of objects (such as refuse dumps), scatters and buried objects. When a Chinese coin was found at prehistoric site 45-DO-211, subsurface investigations were conducted in the historic component, designated 45-DO-210H. However, no definite evidence of Chinese influence was found. The 30 sites included five allotments, nine placer mines, 12 homesteads, three ferry crossings and a burial marker. Evidence indicates that the area was settled by homesteaders and miners in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The ferries and associated buildings that served the miners and homesteaders were installed during this same period. The last mine was abandoned during the 1950s and most homesteads by shortly after World War I. Improved roads and bridges made the ferries obsolete by 1930. Remnants of homesteads, mines, allotments and ferry landings suggest that, in general, these enterprises were modest.
