  • 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!

          Your musings are soooo profound ! As is your research !
          I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


          They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

          There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

          Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
          It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

          There's a chance you might not like me ,

          but there's a bigger

          chance I won't care

            You must tell us how you do your research.
            Take nothing for granted. Life can change irrevocably in a heartbeat.

            I will not feed the troll-well, I will try.

                  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

                    Before I continue, please know that I mean no offense to anyone. I don't know much about Native American cultures beyond what I learned in school, so please forgive me if I cause offense.
