My brother in law is a great grandson of Chief Joseph. We have also become good friends with his cousin, who is also a great granddaughter of the chief and she posesses many of his personal things that only Joseph had passed for family to keep. The tribe has been wanting to take claim of these things because the history he is so famous for. I am hoping to get the chance to view the awsome heirlooms soon. They are very proud of their heritage. Both of the people I speak of are 1/4 native...never would have thought they were related but the cousin shows some characteristics of native american features.
