There were endless promises made to the American Indian. They

were promised lands until the end of time. They were promised

abundant food and clothing when they were forced upon reservations.

They were promised they could keep their way of life if they went

to reservations. As Chief Joseph said so eloquently, " They made us

many promises, more than I can remember, but they only kept but

one. They promised to take our lands, and they did."
