Crowfoot--Blackfoot Chief

Painting by Kirby Sattler

The white man's police have protected us
only as well as the feathers of a bird
protect it from the frosts of winter.

Crowfoot - Blackfoot Chief

What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset.
