fosters emotional chaos, self degradation, and depravity.

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Tecumseh (1768-1813)
Shawnee
On this date in Native American history :
The American have not yet defeated us by land ; neither are we sure that they have done so by
water ; we therefore, wish to remain here, and fight our enemy, if they should make an
appearance. If they defeat us, we will then retreat with our father.
You have got the arms and ammunition which our great father sent for his red children. If you
have an idea of going away, give them to us, and you may go and welcome.
Tecumseh, Shawnee
Speaking to Colonel Henry Proctor, who wanted Tecumseh and his people to retreat with the
British into Canada. September 13, 1813.

Seats inside the circles are reserved for performers.
Do not dress like an Indian or mimic the Native people.
Do not touch a person's regalia (outfit) without permission.
If you are asked to dance by elder, do so. Saying no is disrespectful.

The entire creation still follows ...instructions of life. The tree, the fruits, they never fail. They never
make a mistake to bring their fruits in their season. The animals never make a mistake. They
still live as they were created. Among the creation...Life, the circle, a measurement with no
beginning and no ending.

September 20 :
To "make medicine" is to engage upon a special period of fasting, thanksgiving, prayer and self
denial, even of self torture. The procedure is entirely a devotional exercise. The purpose is to subdue
the passions of the flesh and to improve the spiritual self. The bodily abstinence and the mental
concentration upon lofty thoughts cleansers both the body and the soul and puts them into or keeps
them in health. Then the individual mind gets closer toward conformity with the mind of the Great
Medicine above us.

You say you are sent to instruct us how to worship the Great Spirit agreeably to
his mind ; and if we do not take hold of the religion which you white people teach
we shall be unhappy hereafter? You sAy that you are right, and we are lost. How do
you know this to be true? We understand that your religion is written in a book. If
it was intended for us as well for you, why has not the Great Spirit given it to us ;
and not only to us, but why did he not give our forefathers the knowledge of that
book, with the means of understanding it rightly?
Red Jacket (Sagoyewatha)

No talk is ever given without first indicating your humility. "I am an ignorant man ; I am a poor
man..."all the talks start this way. "I don't know nearly as much as you men sitting around here,
but I would like to offer my humble opinion...and then he will knock you down with logic and
wisdom.

September 26 :
The many moons and sunny days we have lived here will long be remembered by
us. The Great Spirit has smiled upon us and made us glad. But we have agreed to
go. We go to a country we know little of. Our home will be beyond a great river
on the way to the setting sun. We will build our wigwams there in another land...
The men we leave here in possession of these lands cannot say Keokuk or his people
ever took up the tomahawk...In peace we bid you goodbye...If you come see us, we
will gladly welcome you.
Keokuk
A Sauk tribal leader, who signed a number of treaties with the United States
government giving it various tracts of land in exchange for reservation land and
necessities for his people. This speech was given when his people were told they
would have to relocate west of the Mississippi River, September 26, 1833.

We respected our old people above all others in the tribe. To live to be so old they must have been brave and
strong, and good fighters, and we aspired to be like them. We never allowed our old people to want for
anything...We looked upon our old people as demigods of a kind, we loved them deeply. They were all our
fathers.
