A feature film with the title I Will Fight No More Forever. It consists of four (4) reels of color 16mm acetate and polyester films with optical sound. Based on a true story, the film chronicles the experiences of Chief Joseph (Ned Romero), a leader of the indigenous Nez Perce band whose resistance to the US government's attempts to forcibly remove them from their land and relocate them to a reservation catches the attention of General Oliver O. Howard (James Whitmore).
