Chief Dan George - “In the long hundred years since the white man came, I have seen my freedom disappear like the salmon going mysteriously out to sea,” he said. “The white man’s strange customs, which I did not understand, pressed down upon me until I could no longer breathe.    “When I fought to protect my land and my home, I was called a savage. When I neither understood nor welcomed this way of life, I was called lazy. When I tried to rule my people, I was stripped of my authority."
