"The white man has offered to buy some of our land. But how can he buy something that is not owned, and how can we sell something we do not own? How can anyone own part of the Earth? Can he own the sunlight, or the moon or the stars? The Great Spirit made these things for all of us. If the white man's spirit was with him he would know this, but his Spirit has left him. He will go to War over something he already has. I also think that his mind has left him."

amazing! I continuosly wonder how one could own a piece of earth. You have articulated this thought extraodrinarily well IMO . . .this painting depicts the exact profound thought

I'm a big fan of this piece - I'm very much into Native American drawings and history, and the quote you added is a heart-squeezer
