"If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace. There need be no trouble. Treat ALL men alike, give them the same law,, give them ALL an even chance to live and grow. You might as well expect the rivers to run backwards as that any man, born a free man, should be contented when penned up and denied the liberty to go where he pleases. We only ask an even chance to live as other men live. We ask to be recognized as men. Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty. -Chief Joseph-
What's right for one person is right for another, right? Wrong. Blackhawk v. Lehigh Twp. is a story of discriminatory and religious justice versus power and money. Read this, and decide for yourself.
BLACK CROW'S RELIGIOUS STRUGGLE
Should an inmate be denied his/her right to practice their religion? Read this and decide. Excellent Indian artwork here too.
