My heart is a stone: heavy with sadness for my people; cold with the knowledge that no treaty will keep whites out of our lands; hard with the determination to resist as long as I live and breathe. Now we are weak and many of our people are afraid. But hear me: a single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong. Someday I will embrace our brother tribes and draw them into a bundle and together we will win our country back from the whites.
As quoted in Touch the Earth : A Self-portrait of Indian Existence (1973) by T. C. McLuhanl this contains a remark "a single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong." similar to statements attributed to Aesop, and contained in Jewish scriptures.
