Chief Joseph's Surrender Speech, October 5, 1877 by Chief Joseph Tell General Howard I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart. I am tired of fighting. Our Chiefs are killed; Looking Glass is dead, Ta Hool Hool Shute is dead. The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say yes or no. He who led on the young men is dead. It is cold, and we have no blankets; the little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no blankets, no food. No one knows where they are—perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. 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. What does the speaker say about the "old men"? The old men make the young people blankets and warm clothes. Because the old men have died, the young have to make decisions. The speaker's tribe requires that the old always go before the young. Because of their experience, the old men are now giving the young advice.
