Read this powerful short poem by a Native American Quinnipiac sachem. For anyone concerned for the rights of America’s indigenous people, this book is important.
Iron Thunderhorse was imprisoned in a Texas penitentiary–wrongfully, as many believe–in 1978. Since that time he has been repeatedly tortured by the guards.
Despite his mistreatment and the unjustness of his hopeless position, Thunderhorse maintains a strong spirit. Here is his poem:
You must listen
with believing hearts
to the sound of
the wild things.
All good souls
