    Because the old men have died, the young have to make decisions.

    Explanation:

    In his speech given before his surrender in 1877, Chief Joseph tells of his decision to no longer fight against the American army in the Battle of the Bear Paw Mountains. He states his surrender to the government for he had lost a lot of his Nez Perce people in the fighting.

    In the speech titled "I Will Fight No More Forever", Chief Joseph laments how his people had been killed and scattered, leaving family members dead and missing, without food. He says "The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say yes or no", implying that the young men are now the ones in authority to do and decide what the future becomes. He also reveals "I am tired; my heart is sick and sad", and decided to fight no more.
