約瑟夫 (Joseph) 酋長在1877105日投降了

約瑟夫酋長深愛他的家鄉、人民,以及和平,但是他已經厭倦一直躲避美國陸軍的追擊。「聽我說,我的子民們!我已經累了!我的心已經生病且感到難受。從現在太陽升上的位置開始,我不再戰鬥了。」在1877105日,約瑟夫酋長在蒙大拿州熊掌山 (Bear Paw Mountains) 投降時說了這些話。在經過穿越奧勒岡、華盛頓、愛達荷以及蒙大拿超過1000英里的跋涉路途,在不斷逃避聯邦軍隊的追捕之後,約瑟夫和他的族人決定向軍隊投降。他們那時候距離加拿大邊境與自由只有40英里遠。


Chief Joseph loved his homeland, his people, and peace, but he was tired of running from the U.S. Army. "Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever." On October 5, 1877, Chief Joseph spoke these words during his surrender in the Bear Paw Mountains of Montana. After a harrowing journey of more than 1,000 miles across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana, pursued by the federal army, he and his followers surrendered to the troops. They were 40 miles from the Canadian border and freedom.
