also the words of KICKING BIRD:
"the white preachers came to our people. they said for us to get down on our knees, close our eyes & pray to their gods AND that something magical would happen then. when we opened our eyes, the buffalo herds were GONE!"

Good quotre by the Indian leaders.
The record of "treaties" between the United States and any of the Indian Nations is abysmal. I don't think we kept even one of them. Our treatment of the Indian Nations is a black mark on this country's history.
