WISDOM


THE SPIRITS WILL NOT COMPETE WITH THE NOISE OF THE WORLD, YOU HAVE TO LISTEN





LOOK AT ME, I AM POOR AND NAKED,

BUT I AM A CHIEF OF A NATION.

WE DO NOT WANT RICHES

BUT WE DO WANT TO TRAIN OUR CHILDREN RIGHT.

RICHES WOULD DO US NO GOOD

WE COULD NOT TAKE THEM WITH US TO THE OTHER WORLD

WE DO NOT WANT RICHES.

WE WANT PEACE AND LOVE

RED CLOUD











WE DO NOT WANT CHURCHES

BECAUSE THEY WILL TEACH US TO QUARREL ABOUT GOD,

AS THE CATHOLICS AND THE PROTESTANTS DO

WE DO NOT WANT TO LEARN THIS

WE MAY QUARREL WITH MEN ABOUT THINGS ON EARTH

BUT WE WILL NEVER QUARREL ABOUT GOD

WE DO NOT WANT TO LEARN THIS


CHIEF JOSEPH

















YOU MUST SPEAK STRAIGHT

SO THAT YOUR WORDS GO

AS SUNLIGHT INTO THE HEART


COCHISE







GREAT SPIRIT

I WANT NO BLOOD UPON MY LAND

TO STAIN THE GRASS.

I WANT IT ALL CLEAR AND PURE,

AND I WISH IT SO,

THAT ALL WHO GO THROUGH AMONG

MY PEOPLE MAY FINE IT

PEACEFUL WHEN THEY COME

AND LEAVE PEACEFUL WHEN THEY GO.


TEN BEARS


















I BELIEVE MUCH TROUBLE AND BLOOD

WOULD BE SAVED IF

WE OPENED OUR HEARTS MORE

I WILL TELL YOU IN MY WAY

HOW THE INDIAN SEES THINGS.

THE WHITE MAN HAS MORE WORDS

TO TELL YOU HOW THEY LOOK TO HIM

BUT IT DOES NOT REQUIRE

MANY WORDS TO SPEAK THE TRUTH.


CHIEF JOSEPH
