The tone of Chief Joseph's work strikes at the very heart of the challenges in the relationship between Native Americans and the government establishment.  In three sentences, I would suggest that the tone is reflective, in that it seeks to present an argument for why there is a collision of values between the two groups.  This reflection tone is also highly analytic, as Chief Joseph lays out the history of the relationship between the two as one that is fraught with promises broken and assurances unfulfilled.  Finally, I think that there is a concluding tone that demands for acknowledgement of "the other" in American policy and thought, an idea that lies at the heart of both the promises of the democratic experiment and its hopes which remain unfulfilled for many.
