We thank them… and many more.

“Our word is sacred to us and so are these Treaties. The US government came to us, not the other way around. They asked us to lay down our arms and to live in peace and friendship with them in perpetuity. They said they would respect our traditional land rights in return. We have held up our end of the bargain. When can we expect the same from them?”

~ James Main Sr., IITC Board member – Gros Ventre (White Clay) Nation, Montana
