"I am a red man. If the Great Spirit had desired me to be a white man he
would have made me so in the first place. He put in your heart certain
wishes and plans, in my heart he put other and different desires. Each man
is good in his sight. It is not necessary for Eagles to be Crows. We are
poor..but we are free. No white man controls our footsteps. If we must
die...we die defending our rights."
