Chief Joseph: Leader of the Nez Perce: Educational Version
by Calista Plummer
Chief Joseph was the name given to the leader of the Nez Perce Indians by the white men who couldn't pronounce Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekht (Thunder Rolling in the Mountains).
Inheriting the leadership of the Wallowa Band from his father in 1871, Joseph led his people in the Nez Perce war of 1877, the first and only war between the Nez Perce and the whites.
