What are some promises that were made to the American Indians?
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."
