The Little Big Horn address/Native american version of the Gettysburg address/Satire

This is something I wrote some few years ago, looking at things if the First Nations roles had been changed.

The Little Big Horn address/Native american version of the Gettysburg address/Satire

Kavika, in honor of the United Native Americas. I was digging through some of my great great great grandfather Chief Digatoga Tlamaha keepsakes that had been stored in the long house for many years. I came across a faded piece of paper which maybe the greatest Native American First Nations historical find ever. Our 16th Great Chief gave an address after the 6/25/1876 Battle of Little Big Horn. What an honor to Know my great great great grandfather Chief Digatoga Tlamaha stood next to this Great Chief as he gave this delivery. So to share with all of our Native American Brothers and Sisters of the United Native Americas. Here is Our 16th Great Chief with the Little Big Horn Address:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers were driven from their land on this continent, by the white man who came to this continent to destroy our nations and start a white man’s nation. Conceived in trickery and deceit, and dedicated to the proposition that all Native Americans were savages and not created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great war of survival, testing whether the white man’s nation or any nation so conceived in, broken promises, trickery, deceit and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on that great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that the first peoples nation might live.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. Our braves, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which our great chiefs and braves who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion to see that the First Peoples would rise as a nation and the great buffalo would return and we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—That the First Nations, under Unequa, shall have a new birth with our peoples freedom and that our government of the First Peoples, by the First Peoples, for the First Peoples, shall not perish from Mother Earth.
