"There's an Apache tale abut a man who woke up one morning
and saw a hawk, walked outside and never returned.
After he died, he met his wife in the Spirit World and she asked him
why he never came home, and he said:
"Well, the hawk just kept flying..."

"Let us put our minds together and see what kind of life we can make
for our children." - Sitting Bull
Tail [Sinte-Galeska] (1823-1881) Native American Chief of the Brule Sioux “This
war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children
of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our
land, do a great many evil things. . . . This war has come from robbery--from
the stealing of our land.”
The Old Hopi sighed and stirred the fire to keep it going. "We got a lot more
to think about", he said sadly. "We haven't even got to what the words from the
sly foxes in the boxes have been saying and doing." He pulled down another well
worn book and paged knowingly to a special place. He adjusted his glasses and
began to read slowly: "Of course the people don't want war... Naturally, the common
people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for
that matter in Germany... that is understood... But voice or no voice, the people
can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have
to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack
of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
