One of the two greatest Native American Indian speeches ever given, this podcast gives you bot the background information on the speech as well as the entire short yet powerfully moving Surrender speech that Chief Joseph gave on October 5, 1877.

I think this speech and the story of what happened to this particular tribe of Nez Perce Native American Indians perfectly sums up the struggle that the Indians had in American. It is also a tribute to the unbelievable fighting skills of this tribe as they were outnumbered about 8 to 1, fighting over 1,170 miles during winter only to end up 40 miles short of their objective, Canada.
