Chief Two Eagles
An old Indian chief sat in his Hogan on the reservation, smoking a ceremonial
pipe and eyeing two U.S. government officials sent to interview him.
"Chief Two Eagles," asked one 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 officials for over a minute and then calmly
replied "When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes, no
debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all the work, medicine man free,
Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing and all night having sex." he
chief leaned back and smiled ..... "Only white man dumb enough to think he
could improve system like that
