This portrait of Chief Joseph was copyrighted in 1903 by Edward S. Curtis. It was likely taken when Chief Joseph visited Curtis in November of 1903 at his studio in Seattle. Chief Joseph had traveled to Seattle to lobby for the return of his tribe's homeland in Oregon. A leader of the Nez Perce for many years, he did not succeed in his quest that year, and would die on September 21st the following year, at his home on the Colville Reservation.
