When the legends die, the dreams end; there is no more greatness.

A Quote by Tecumseh, of the Shawnees on country, death, destruction, oppression, people, spirit, and struggle

Where today are the Pequot? Where are the Narragansett, the Mohican, the Pokanoket, and many other once powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and the oppression of the White Man, as snow before a summer sun. Will we let ourselves be destroyed in our turn without a struggle, give up our homes, our country bequeathed to us by the Great Spirit, the graves of our dead and everything that is dear to us? I know you will cry with me, "NEVER! NEVER!."

Tecumseh
