I'm the only one who's responsible for my soul, if I don't do the right thing here. I'm at fault, not him, not the
church, not the mountain over there or the sun. This is the way they teach Indian religion. No one is going
to influence you, no one is going to bring you up to your grave, but yourself.

My son, you are now flesh and bone of our bone. By the ceremony performed this day, every drop of white
blood was washed from your veins ; you were taken into the Shawnee nation...you were adopted into a
great family (at the tribal adoption of Daniel Boone in 1778).

Standards of conduct were just as rigid as the laws of any other people, but force seldom was
used to enforce good conduct. Each person was his own judge. Deceitfulness was a crime. We
lived according to our own standards and principles, not for what others might think of us.

We believe that the spirit pervades all creation and that every creature possesses a soul in some
degree, though not necessarily a soul conscious of itself. The tree, the waterfall, the grizzly bear,
each is an embodied Force, and as such an object of reverence.

We ask every lover of justice, is it right that a great and powerful government should, year by
year, continue to demand cessions of land from weaker and dependent people, under the plea
of securing homes for the homeless?

arisen between us.

Marriage among my people was like traveling in a canoe. The
man sat in front and paddled the canoe. The woman sat in the
stern, but she steered.

American languages which has often resulted in acts of suppression and extermination of Native
American languages and cultures...in conflict with the United States policy of self determination
for Native Americans."

Brother : We are of the same opinion with the people of the United States ; you consider yourselves
as independent people ; we, as the original inhabitants of this country, and sovereigns of the soil,
look upon ourselves as equally independent, and free as any other nation or nations. This country
was given to us by the Great Spirit above ; we wish to enjoy it (at a council of whites).

All life was injustice...lightening found the good man and the bad . Sickness carried no respect
for virtue, and luck flitted around like the spring butterfly. It is good to learn this in the days of
mother's milk.
