Quote

“We never did the white man any harm; we don’t intend to… We are willing to be friends with the white man… The buffalo are diminishing fast. The antelope, that were plenty a few years ago, they are now thin. When they shall all die we shall be very hungry…”

Tonkahaska, Tall Bull, to General Scott Hancock
