Testimonials from participants:

“Best ride ever and a great opportunity in sharing the history of the trail. It made me very proud of my heritage and I liked sharing my culture with other riders. I enjoyed meeting so many different people and making new friends.”
– Katherine, A National Chief Joseph Trail Ride youth sponsored by Chief Joseph
Foundation

“The ride was very heartbreaking because of the past history the trail holds.
Following our ancestor’s tracks made me realize the hardships our people went through. I also felt a deep sense of pride in being Nez Perce and sharing native songs and stories with other riders.”
– Nikoli, A National Chief Joseph Trail Ride youth sponsored by Chief Joseph
Foundation.
