An old Indian Chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a ceremonial pipe and eyeing two US Government Officials sent to interview him.

"Chief Two Eagles" asked one official, "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his material wealth. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

The Chief nodded that this was so.

The official concluded: "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The old Chief stared at the officials for a long time, and then calmly replied:

"When white man found this land, Indians were running it.

No Taxes, No Debt, Plenty Buffalo, Plenty Beaver,

Women did all the work, medicine man free,

Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, and all night having sex. "

The Chief then leaned back, smilled and added:

"White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that?"
