DUCATION HAS RUINED
' Denver, Colo.; Oct. 20. Education and
the "refinements of" civilisation" have
ruined the life of the Indian, If he had
' never tried to learn the white men's
ways' or read - white men's books, he
would have been happier. t ,; V .
- These were the sentiments expressed
, In an , Interview by Chief Roman Nm
, of the Cheyenne tribe, w,ho Is here at-
' . tending the first annual convention of
:. the : Society. of American ' Indians.
Roman Nose as a boy graduated from a
white man's college but returned to his
tribe in Oklahoma and forgot his edu-
.' cation until he-can speak English with
l ; -I wish I could have lived my life the
old Indian way," he said. "We were
, free before and strong and happy, I
want to see a real conference of all the
Indians somewhere. Then they should
r make a stand for themselves . and say
they would : govern x themselves once
more. I do not want them to become
American citizens, I want thvra to rule
themselves to have their own nation.
, "When Indian children . who go , to
whits men's schools return to us they
era not Indians any more and they are
not white. They are something that
should not be. They cannot be whites
and they look down, on us old Indians.
. , "Now we are weaklings. Reading
. books has weakened our eyes and using
: . the pen has made our hands so that they
are not fit to use weapons. I learned
... to read, and see, I am blind In one eye
, because of it. I learned to write, and
my hand is weak because of all those
J years I spent shut up In (he white man's
