Indian chief Two Eagles was asked by a white government official, "you have observed the white man for 90 years; you've seen his wars and his technological advances; you've seen his progress, and the damage he's done." The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued, "considering all these events, in your opinion where did the white man go wrong?"

The chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied, "when white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water, women did all the work, medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex."

Then the chief leaned back and smiled, '"only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

I was out wood cutting with a friend who happens to be a local indian here. He is one of those guys who is deep into his heritage and a tribal elder. All morning he was pointing out every tree, bush and plant and telling me the indian name for it. We were sitting there eating lunch not really saying much to each other. He turned to me and said "its going to be a cold winter this year" I'm thinking he had some indian insight as to why, so I had to ask why. He said "the white man is cutting alot of wood".
