AMERIAN INDIAN CHIEFS ON FACEBOOK

From the Editor in Chief:
"Dear Tribal Community,"

TOP 10 GREATEST INDIAN CHIEFS

California Indian Education's tribal resource is being compiled to introduce young Native American Indian students to a few of their nations' most famous Indian chiefs of North America, brave tribal leaders and warriors who have left their mark on the recorded history of our great lands — please do your own research to learn more in-depth facts, tribal biographies and their most noteworthy quotes about these famous Native American Indians.

The California Indian Education website's "Top Ten" Indian chiefs is not so much about listing the top 10 chiefs of all time (which will forever be debatable), but our Indian guide is about beginning a study resource to familiarize students with some of the most important and influential Native American leaders of the recorded history.

TRADITIONAL American Indian Quotations

MEDICINE WHEELUpon suffering beyond suffering:

The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world; a world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations; a world longing for light again.

I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again.

In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom.

I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.

- Crazy Horse, Oglala Lakota Sioux (circa 1840-1877)

Crazy Horse is quoted as saying while he sat smoking the Sacred Pipe with Sitting Bull for the last time — Crazy Horse was killed four days later by US Army soldiers in a hand-to-hand scuffle as they attempted to imprison him. There are no known photographs of Crazy Horse, he would not permit anyone to take his picture, presumably, Crazy Horse believed a photograph stole or unnaturally held the soul of the person(s) pictured.

SOVEREIGN TRIBAL NATIONS

AMERICAN TRIBAL SOVEREIGNTY — LEGAL BASIS: The Constitution of the United States, U.S. Supreme Court, federal and state laws, as well as historical treaties all support the federally-recognized Native American tribes' present-day legal rights to self-government and certain forms of limited tribal sovereignty....
