Looking for quote attributed to Native American chief

I was doing some research on the Southeastern tribes this summer and came across a quote attributed to a Native American that I have been wanting to verify. It was just a few sentences on Christianity -- something like, "White men have knowledge of God, but we cannot know him. We are shut out because of our sins," citing abortion and something else I can't remember.

It sounded like something a white person might make up, so I Googled it and the only source the book I read it in. I can't remember what it was.

I think I also Googled the name of the person, possibly a chief, and don't think I found anything either. It was short and started with a C. I am assuming it was someone living in the late 19th or early 20th century. I'm 80% sure this was a Cherokee. It was probably in a book about the Southeastern tribes.

I would really appreciate any help. Thank you!

You must tell us how you do your research.

Definitely not Cherokee and I can say that with 100% certainty!
Sin is a Christian Concept brought to us originally by the Monrovians and later by the Baptist.
I see these quotes all the time all bullshyte

My favorite is "Goddamn a Potato"
That is true
