Several events in Chief Joseph’s term as chief of the Wallowa band show us he was more diplomat than warrior.The Voice of the West

The first event happened in 1885 when, Isaac Stevens, governor of the Washington Territory, organized a council to designate separate areas for natives and settlers. Joseph the Elder (“Young Joseph’s” father) and the other Nez Perce chiefs signed a treaty with the United States establishing a Nez Perce reservation encompassing 7.7 million acres in present-day Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. The 1855 reservation maintained much of the traditional Nez Perce lands, including Josephs Wallowa Valley.
The second event was an influx of new settlers caused by a gold rush led the government to call a second council in 1863.” Government commissioners asked the Nez Perce to accept a new, much smaller reservation of 780,000 acres (3,200 km2) situated around the village of Lapwai in Idaho, and excluding the Wallowa Valley.” In exchange, they were promised financial rewards and schools and a hospital for the reservation. One of the allied chiefs signed the treaty on behalf of the Nez Perce Nation, but Joseph the Elder and several other chiefs were opposed to selling their lands, and did not sign. Their refusal to sign caused a rift between the "non-treaty" and "treaty" bands of Nez Perce. The "treaty" Nez Perce moved within the new Idaho reservation's boundaries, while the "non-treaty" Nez Perce remained on their lands. Joseph the Elder demarcated Wallowa land with a series of poles, proclaiming, "Inside this boundary all our people were born. It circles the graves of our fathers, and we will never give up these graves to any man."
The third event was when Joseph the Younger succeeded his father as leader of the Wallowa band in 1871. Before his death, the latter counseled his…...

The Life of Joseph

...The Life of Joseph Joseph was born to Jacob and Rachel after she had been unable to have children for seven years. Joseph was Jacob’s 11th son, and his favorite, born when he was very old. Jacob made Joseph a beautiful robe that had many colors in it. Jacob would often send Joseph to spy on his brothers and to report back to him any behavior that was considered inappropriate. The brothers knew Joseph was watching them and their hatred for him grew even more for telling Jacob what they were doing. Joseph also had special dreams in which he could predict things that would happen in the future. When Joseph told the brothers of his dreams, they wanted to know what he could see. He told them that in the first dream, sheaves of wheat that belonged to them were going to bow to his sheaf. In the second dream, he told them that the sun, moon and eleven stars were going to bow to him. When Joseph was 17 years old, he worked with his brothers as shepherds. One day Jacob sent Joseph to see what the brothers were doing in Shechem. When Joseph got there, the brothers were nowhere to be found. A man told him where they were, so he went to Dotham to see what they were up to. Though he was trying not to be seen by the brothers, he was spotted anyway. Before he could reach them, they had already come up with a plan between them to kill Joseph. The brothers tore his robe off and threw him in a pit. Reuben had talked the brothers into throwing him in the pit instead of killing him so that...

Joseph and His Brothers

...Joseph’s Brother Go to Egypt In Genesis 42, Joseph’s brothers came to Egypt to buy grain during the famine. Unknowingly the brothers come before Joseph, who was governor of the land. He knew who his brothers were immediately, although did not reveal his identity. He acted as a stranger to show his brothers that he was truly a better person. They were allowed to buy grain, and he provided provisions for their journey and refurbished their money. This shows that he sought to show his brothers forgiveness them for mistreating him so. He accused his brothers of being spies, by bringing Benjamin to Egypt, it showed he that his brothers in fact did not recognize him and were not there to spy or harm him again. This is important because Benjamin was a favored child, such as Joseph. The moral of the story is all about forgiveness. God put Joseph through many struggles; his brothers leaving him in the pit, being sold into slavery, accused of lying with Potiphar’s wife, imprisonment and being forgotten by the butler. Each of these happenings could have caused Joseph to become pessimistic, unforgiving and possibly evil; although Joseph had God with him through all his strife, the narrartor tell us.. God had a plan for Joseph to triumph all negative things and show forgiveness and spread it through his story. He believes that God’s plan eventually led him to saving his brothers lives. If not for all the bad things that happened to Joseph, his brothers may not have been granted...

He was born in Gori, Georgia, the son of a poor shoemaker in 1879. Like most young Russian men, of Stalin time, he struggled to find his way, but after much hardship in Georgia. He grew to be anti-government and the Marxist ideas were his new found believes. Stalin elected President after Lenin death in 1924. “The Russian Revolution was a war between the Bolshevik (Red Guard), communist, and Mensheviks (White Guard)”, Frazee, C. A. p179. Joseph Stalin fought in the civil war Bolshevik, standing strong on his ideals of socialism was the only way Russian would survive. His authoritarian rule forced the Russian people to believe as he did that socialism the right way and capitalism was wrong. While Stalin was in power, his ruling strategies industrialized the country, communized their agriculture, and he made Russia a more active country on international affairs, he lead his country to a superpower. The early years of Stalin were the foundational years that gave him the true since of poverty, “an uptown boy, he distinguished himself in fighting, in Russian of the late 1880 and early 1890, Stalin at the age of fifteen adopted the Marxist ways” Davies, S. and Harris J P30.

Courageous Faith - Joseph

...Courageous Faith Hero The person that I chose to be my hero from Courageous Faith is Joseph. Joseph was a daddy's boy who was the first son of Jacob and Rachel. Unlike his half brothers who had witnessed Jacob's conniving and manipulative lifestyle, Joseph knew his dad whose life had been dramatically transformed by God. He grew up respecting his dad and also following his Godly example. His brothers were jealous of the treatment that Joseph received from his father, so they eventually plotted against him and sold him into slavery. He ended up in Egypt, sold to Potiphar, who was the captain to Pharaoh's guard, and made it high in his masters eyes with Gods favor. Joseph was eventually sent to prison after refusing to fall into Potiphar's wife's seduction, and wasn't called out until Pharaoh's butler reveled that Joseph could interpret dreams. He then, with told Pharaoh what God had determined the dreams to be, and was named Lord of Egypt, second to only Pharaoh himself. After many years go by he reunited with his brothers to reveal that he wasn't dead and that his dreams had come true, and that there father Jacobs prayers had in fact been answered by God. The reason that I had chosen Joseph, is because of the betrayal, and the abandonment, and test by God that he had went through in his life. I felt that I could relate to him more that any other of the hero's. As me being the middle child and being neglected in my younger days, and with my parents getting divorced when......

Joseph Stalin

...Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953) was not the major player of the October Revolution of 1917, however, he later grew through the ranks of the Bolshevik party and became one of the most powerful dictators that the world had ever encountered. His path to the dictator of the Soviet Union began when he was appointed to the position of the general secretary of the Communist Party in 1922. A lot of Bolsheviks criticize Stalin in the 1920s, but this did not prevent him from getting the power. Lenin was the first Bolshevik’s leader who foreshadowed Stalin’s dictatorship inclination by writing in his “Testament”: “Comrade Stalin … has concentrated an enormous power in his hand; and I am not sure that he always know how to use that power with sufficient caution.” (CP I, 64) Further in the testament Lenin suggested to remove Stalin from the post: “I propose to the comrades to find the way to remove Stalin from that position and appoint to it another man…”(CP I, 64) After the death of Lenin in 1924, Stalin started to destroy his opponents. Stalin was very skillful in maneuvering around situation to make his opponents look bad. Also, he was constantly changing his theory depends on whom he needed to destroy. The first Stalin’s target was Trotsky who wrote “theory of permanent revolution” where he elaborated on his concerns that the Soviet regime, being unsupported by international revolution, was in threat of losing its social qualities. Stalin criticized Trotsky’s publication and...

Joseph Haydn

...Since the classical period, Franz Joseph Haydn is known to be the ‘Father of Symphony’ and the ‘Father of the String Quartet’. He was a divine composer and was able to create symphonies at different heights. Because of him, symphonies are extended in length and are an actual musical form. Haydn was very well-known at his time. It’s impressive to know that he had written over one hundred symphonies, more than any other composer! I think he is one of the greatest composers to have ever lived; to be able to be close friends with Mozart and teach Beethoven himself is an extraordinary thing. Mozart and Beethoven were the greatest musical artists during their time, so for Haydn to share his talents and teach them things shows that he was an amazing composer. He even had a list of string quartets dedicated to him by Mozart. Haydn contributed to the development of music tremendously. Symphonies were made before he began to write them but he created an orchestral repertoire out of them. Making music for a wealthy family, Haydn learned and became more skilled in his music. Being asked to compose music at the age of eighteen with only two violinists, a cellist, and a violist, Haydn perfected what is known to be the string quartet. He’s written many of them and since his day people challenge themselves to compose a string quartet, since it’s very limited with no other instruments. He was a kindhearted, optimistic, and a funny man. Haydn had a great personality and loved......

Joseph Goebbels

...World War II was one of the most important historical periods of the Twentieth-Century. The causes, and consequences of the war helped historian understand the politics of the time as well as to observe the reactions from the different governments and citizens from all over the world. Though some historians recount the events from World War II from a general perspective and focus on the different military strategies and government policies, others discuss the individuals involved in the war and their influence on the causes and outcome of the war. Further on, historians tend to focus on the major leaders during the world: Churchill, Hitler, Roosevelt and De Gaulle. Nevertheless, some historians have paid close attention to those around these great leaders and discussed their influence over them and their respective government policies. Before the beginning of World War II, Adolf Hitler guided the Nazi party into power in Germany during the 1930’s. Hitler did not led Germany into war on its own, but with the help of a few close associates one of them being Joseph Goebbels.
