Prose From An American Genocide

POIGNANT and time proven resilience.  On the day before US History was tragically archived at the Little Bighorn (in 1876), we post evidence of a strong desire for a people to be left alone and free to avoid life on a reservation.  


Native American - Honoring our Ancestors, Culture & SpiritualityIf the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace...
Treat all men alike. 
Give them all the same law. 
Give them all an even chance
to live and grow. All men were made by
the same Great Spirit Chief. 
They are all brothers. 
The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it....
Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers,free to think and talk and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty.
