    Then, too, his law was a written law; his divine decalogue reposed in a book. The peaceful life experienced by Native Americans and the "oneness" with nature is something we, as a culture, have destroyed for them. That is the law among the Indians. It was not the negligence of Captain Pratt, but rather lax Indian agents who would set aside letters from Carlisle until the parents came into the agency for something.

    In preceding years conditions on the reservation had worsened, and Standing Bear was shocked by the physical and mental status of the reservation Sioux.

At dinner-time that same day, when I sat down to our table, I saw to my surprise that there were pancakes before us. He never even mentioned General Custer's name. He was no longer willing to endure existence under the control of an overseer. I asked him what was the matter, and he said it was a wild horse and he was not going to ride it into the arena.

When the elder Standing Bear returned to Carlisle, visibly impressed with the power of whites, he told his son that he must study hard and learn the white man's ways. His attention to the service pleased Captain Pratt exceedingly. The chief and his people had been held prisoners of war, and now here they were to appear in a Philadelphia theater.

Long before it was time for the show to begin, people were lining up on the road.
