Where did we go wrong?~~~>
- The old Shoshone sat in his hut on the
reservation, smoking the ceremonial pipe, eyeing the US government
officials sent to interview him. "Chief Two Eagles," one official began,
"you have observed the white man for 90 years. You have observed his
wars and his material wealth.
You have seen his progress and the damage he has done."
The Chief nodded that it was so.
The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your
opinion, where did the white man go Wrong?"
The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute,
and then calmly replied, "When white man Found this land, Indians were
running it. No taxes.
Women did all the work.
Medicine man free.
Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing, all Night making
love to women."
The Chief leaned back and smiled, "White man dumb Enough to think
he could improve system like that!"
