[ texte ; photo (amérindien ramassant un crane de bison ?) ]
“I wonder if the ground has anything to say ?
I wonder if the ground is listening to what is said ?
I wonder of the ground would come alive to what is on it ?
Through i hear what the ground says :
… the Great Spirit placed me here”
This poster is from a photograph entitled “Fire Carrier Bringing the Skull” by E.S. Curtis and originally published in his book, “The North American Indian”.
The text is adapted from a speech by Young Chief, a Cayuse leader, who spoke in opposition to the Point Elliot Treaty in 1855. It was published in “Touch the Earth” by Teri McLuhan, published by Outerbridge & Dienstfrey.
