    From the 1927 Grand Council of American Indians
    "The white people, who are trying to make us over into their image, they want us to be what they call "assimilated," bringing the Indians into the mainstream and destroying our own way of life and our own cultural patterns. They believe we should be contented like those whose concept of happiness is materialistic and greedy, which is very different from our way.
    We want freedom from the white man rather than to be integrated. We don't want any part of the establishment, we want to be free to raise our children in our religion, in our ways, to be able to hunt and fish and live in peace. We don't want power, we don't want to be congressmen, or bankers....we want to be ourselves. We want to have our heritage, because we are the owners of this land and because we belong here.
    The white man says, there is freedom and justice for all. We have had "freedom and justice," and that is why we have been almost exterminated. We shall not forget this."

    Who knows whether actual Indians/Native Americans wrote this, but:

    A pretty noble statement.

    ALL RACES should have that aspiration: let us be.

    Including whites.

    Never miss an opportunity to demonstrate your cowardice, eh?

    How. I have reservations about this Papoose. Let's have some roasted dog and roll in the dirt bath we use.
