Strana 39 - The white people have no right to take the land from the Indians, because they had it first; it is theirs. They may sell, but all must join. Any sale not made by all is not valid. The late sale is bad. It was made by a part only. Part do not know how to sell. It requires all to make a bargain for all.
Strana 39 - That it then all belonged to red men, children of the same parents, placed on it by the Great Spirit that made them, to keep it, to traverse it, to enjoy its productions, and to fill it with the same race. Once a happy race. Since made miserable by the white people, who are never contented, but always encroaching.
Strana 35 - It is well known by all my brothers present, that my forefather kindled the first fire at Detroit; from thence he extended his lines to the headwaters of Scioto; from thence to its mouth; from thence, down the Ohio, to the mouth of the Wabash; and from thence to Chicago, on lake Michigan ; at this place, I first saw my elder brothers, the Shawanees.
Strana 149 - Then j'oin hand in hand, brave Americans all, By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall; in so righteous a cause let us hope to succeed, For Heaven approves of each generous deed.
Strana 34 - You have pointed out to us the boundary line between the Indians and the United States ; but I now take the liberty to inform you that that line cuts off from the Indians a large portion of country which has been enjoyed by my forefathers, time immemorial, without molestation or dispute.
Strana 38 - I only take my existence ; from my tribe I take nothing. I am the maker of my own fortune ; and oh ! that I could make that of my red people, and of my country, as great as the conceptions of my mind, when I think of the Spirit that rules the universe. I would not then come to Governor Harrison, to ask him to tear the treaty, and to obliterate the landmark ; but I would say to him, Sir, you have liberty to return to your own country.
Strana 39 - It requires all to make a bargain for all. All red men have equal rights to the unoccupied land. The right of occupancy is as good in one place as in another. There cannot be two occupations in the same place. The first excludes all others.
Strana 32 - We. have beaten the enemy twice under separate commanders. Wt cannot expect the same good fortune always to attend us. The Americans are now led by a chief who never sleeps : the night and the day are alike to him. And during all the time that he has been marching upon our villages, notwithstanding the watchfulness of our young men, we have never been able to surprise him. Think well of tt. There is something whispers me, it would be prudent to listen to his offers of peace.
Strana 38 - My forefathers were warriors. Their son is a warrior. From them I only take my existence ; from my tribe I take nothing. I am the maker of my own fortune ; and oh ! that I could make that of my red people, and of my country, as great as the conceptions of my mind, when I think of the Spirit that rules the universe. I would not then come to Governor Harrison, to ask...
Strana 63 - Empire State" as you love to call it, was once laced by our Trails from Albany to Buffalo — Trails that we had trod for centuries — trails worn so deep by the feet of the Iroquois, that they became your roads of travel as your possessions gradually...
