"If today I had a young mind to direct, to start on the journey of life, and I was faced

   with the duty of  choosing between the natural way of my forefathers and that of

     the... present way of civilization, I  would, for its welfare, unhesitatingly set that

        child's feet in the path of my forefathers. I would raise  him to be an Indian!

 "We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren  

  and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for

      those  who can't speak for themselves such as the birds,  

                              animals, fish and trees."
