Nez Perce Technology
How did Technology impact Nez Perce?
It helped them survive.

They used Bows and Arrows for hunting
In the war they had shields and hemets. They would use Bows and Arrows, and they might poison the arrows heads.
When they were fishing for fish they would use a plain old hook and line
For Transportation they used dugout canoes by hollowing out tree trunks. They also used horses when they were in the war
Human Characteristics

The Nez Perce Tribe had Four Different kinds of houses
Special house- For unmarried men
And a Cone shaped Tipi

Woman in the Nez perce tribe wore
long deerskin dresses

The men in the Nez perce tribe wore
breechcloths with leather leggings and buckskin shirts
The children went to school and had work to do at home. When they want to do something fun they go hunting or fishing with their Dads.
The woman would stay at home and make clothes and tools for the men because they were the warriors protecting their tribe, and men also protected their familey and cooked for their famileys too. Picture from http://www.bigorrin.org/nez_kids.htm Fun Fact!

"How do you pronounce the word "Nez Perce"? What does it mean?
It is pronounced "nezz purse." It comes from the French name for the tribe, Nez Percé (pronounced nay per-say.) Nobody knows why the French called them this. It means "pierced nose," but the Nez Perce people say that unlike some neighboring tribes, they have never had a tribal tradition of pierced noses. Maybe the French confused the Nez Perce with another tribe, or maybe there was once a Nez Perce band or individual who had nose piercings. The Nez Perce name for themselves is Nimipu, which means "the people."

Got this from http://www.bigorrin.org/nez_kids.htm Indian Removal
.The indian removal affected a lot of Tribes Inculding my tribe. They couldn't settle. They couldn't defend their land and so they had to move West. When they headed west They had trouble making a home there, everything was different and it was hard to get use to.
Tension over Land The U.S government demanded That The Nez Perce tribe to move to the Lapwai reservation. chief Joseph was picked to meet and discuss the demand with General Oliver O. howard. Howard delivered a threat to comply, or else. They reluctantly began to move away. This is how the war
Started! Then lots of the Nez perce warriors were killed and the warriors
that were still alive were tierd of fighting so, Joseph Surrendered. :O

This is what Josph said:
"I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed.... The old men are all killed.... 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 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."
