Nez Perce leader Hinmatóowyalahtq̓it,
also known as Chief Joseph,
ends a legendary three-month flight
to Canada by surrendering to US forces.

“Do not misunderstand me,
but understand fully with
reference to my affection for the land.
I never said the land was mine to do with as I choose.
The one who has a right to dispose of it is the one who created it.”
