"Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop,
free to work, free to trade where I choose,
free to choose my own teachers,
free to follow the religion of my fathers,
free to talk, think and act for myself --
and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty."

Chief Joseph
(1840-1904) Chief of the Wal-lam-wat-kain (Wallowa) band of Nez Perce Indians
Lincoln Hall Speech, Washington, DC (January 14, 1879)
