Each man is good in His sight. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows.
What white man can say I never stole his land or a penny of his money? Yet they say that I am a thief.

What treaty that the whites have kept has the red man broken? Not one.
What white man has ever seen me drunk? Who has ever come to me hungry and left me unfed? Who has seen me beat my wives or abuse my children? What law have I broken?
