Follow That Tribe
The great Cherokee Chief, Two Eagles, was asked by a white government official:
You have observed the white man for 90 years. You have seen his wars and his technological advances. You have seen his progress and the damage he has done.
The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued:
Considering all of these events, in your opinion - where did white man go wrong?
The Chief stared at the government official and replied:
When white man find land, Indians running it.
Plenty of buffalo.
Plenty of beaver.
Women did all the work.
Medicine man, free.
Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing and all night having sex.
The wise Chief leaned back and smiled:
Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve a system like that.
