"WHITE MAN WILL BLOW HIMSELF OFF
FACE OF THE EARTH"
"...White man will blow himself off the
face of the earth
(outside link), leaving all the land free
once more for the Indians. "We listen to
our old people, "says a young Indian.
"They say white man gone haywire."
In a recent letter to Washington, the Miccosukee
wrote: "The first white people who came to
Florida were so few that the Indians could have
killed them all before they reached shore in
rowboats. But the chief of our people
said, 'Don't hurt them. Let them
come ashore, and we'll find out what they want.'
In the years since, the Miccouskee have learned
a thousand times what the white man wants.
But in that letter they hopefully asked once
more for their land. They got no reply."
