Although there are a number of photos of Chief Joseph posted in the thread Old Nez Perce photos, I think this remarkable leader deserves a thread of his own... Also by starting this one, I hope some new photos will show up. Meanwhile, I start with anumber of familiar ones:
I'll post what I've got. All fairly obvious, I'm afraid.

Chief Joseph with Lovell Jerome. During the last fight of the Nez Perce war, in october 1877,
Chief Joseph came over to the soldiers to discuss surrender terms. Miles treacherously ignored the white flag and had Chief Joseph detained. Nez Perce warriors in turn captured a lieutenant named Lovell Jerome. The next day the captives were exchanged and fighting continued for two more days. Many years later they met again and Barry took this photograph.
