Native American Words of Wisdom


age Two~Why should you take by force from us that which you can obtain by love? Why should you destroy us who have provided you with food ? What can you get by war ? It is better to eat good meat, be well, and sleep quietly with my women and children; to laugh and be merry with the English, and be their friend; to have copper hatchets and whatever else I want. King Wahunsonacook - Powhatan
