Chief Dan George

Chief Dan George, as Old Lodge Skins in Little Big Man, goes up to the mountain to die:

“Come out and fight
It is a good day to die
Thank you for making me a human being
Thank you for helping me to become a warrior
Thank you for my victories
And for my defeats
Thank you for my vision
And the blindness in which I saw further
You make all things and direct them in their ways, oh Grandfather
And now, you have decided that human beings will soon walk a road that leads nowhere
I am going to die now, unless death wants to fight
And I ask you for the last time to grant me my old power
To make things happen.”
