Wisdom of the Indian Chief

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by Route66, Sep 20, 2007.

  1. An old Indian chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking
    a ceremonial pipe and eyeing two U. S. Government officials
    sent by the president to interview him. One of the officials
    addressed Chief Two Eagles.

    “You were a great leader of a proud people. You have reached a
    venerable age and have made many wise decisions, you have
    observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and
    his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the
    damage he’s done.†The Chief nodded in agreement.
    The official continued, “Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?â€

    The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute
    and then calmly replied, “When white man found the land,
    Indians were running it. No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo,
    plenty beaver, women did all work, medicine man free…he no
    take wampum from my Braves. Indian man go all day hunting and
    fishing, all night making love.â€
    Then the chief leaned back and smiled.

    “Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system likethat.â€

  2. White men just loooooove the notion of the wise, noble savage.
