Spotted Tail quotes

  • This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things... This war has come from robbery - from the stealing of our land.

And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow.

  • To be nonviolent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of the poor animals is Satan's philosophy.

So he appeared to teach ahimsa, nonviolence, being compassionate on the animals and human beings. In the Christian religion also, it is clearly stated, 'Thou shall not kill'. So everywhere animal killing is restricted. In no religion the unnecessary killing of animals is allowed. But nobody is caring. The killing process is increasing, and so are the reactions. Every ten years you will find a war. These are the reactions.

  • War is not an accident. It is the logical outcome of a certain way of life.
