“Our wise men are called fathers, and they truly sustain that character. Do you call yourself Christians? Does then the religion of Him whom you call your savior inspire your spirit, and guide your practices? Surely not.

It is recorded of Him that a bruised reed He never broke. Cease, then, to call yourselves Christians, lest you declare to the world your hypocrisy. Cease, too, to call other nations Savage, when you are ten fold more The children of cruelty then they.”

-Joseph Brant, Mohawk Native American

(The Wisdom of the Native Americans, pg. 35)
