Chief Red Cloud: “We want peace and love.”

Quote:

“I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.”

– Red Cloud, Chief of the Oglala Lakota tribe.
