My mother is Cherokee and I worked for the Native American Indian Association in Nashville. We were having an Indian blanket sale at the annual Pow-Wow. I wrote an article about Native American blankets and quoted Chief Joseph when he said, "It is cold and we have no blankets."
He is famous for marching the Nez Perce tribe 1,400 miles to the Canadian border where they nearly escaped capture.
At his surrender he said, "From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever." He is my hero.
This morning something happened
I am a soldier
They said, "Remember Chief Joseph
To the glory of creation
