„I have always done my best to keep my young men quiet, but some of them will not listen.“

—  Black Kettle Leader of the Southern Cheyenne 1803 - 1868

As quoted in "Notes Among the Indians", Putnam's Magazine (October 1869), p. 476
Contesto: I always feel well while I am among these friends of mine, the Witchitas, Wacoes, and affiliated bands, and I never feel afraid to go among the white men here, because I know them to be my friends also. … I come from a point on the Washita River, about one day's ride from Antelope Hills. Near me there are over one hundred lodges of my tribe, only a part of them are my followers. I have always done my best to keep my young men quiet, but some of them will not listen. When recently north of the Arkansas, some of them were fired upon, and then the war began. I have not since been able to keep my young men at home.
