Seeking Freedom: Causes and Effects of the Flight of the Nez Perce

The U.S. government told the Nez Perce in 1877 to move to a reservation far from their home, or else.  What started out peacefully ended in a desperate attempt to escape U.S. forces.  About 800 tribal members ran for their lives, almost reaching safety in Canada. How would it affect their lives and change the United States?
