"From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever."  Chief Joseph.  

After a 1,100-mile (1770 kilometers) journey and only forty miles (60 kilometers) from the Canadian border,  the Nez Perce laid down arms following a five-day battle. Join us for an interactive discussion led by National Park Service ranger, Casey Overturf, for a captivating chapter of American history and the story of the Nez Perce. Learn about the relationships and events that led up to the confrontation between the American government forces and the Nez Perce at the Bear Paw Battlefield in Montana on October 5, 1877.
