„I claim a right to live on my land and accord you the privilege to return to yours.“

—  Chefe Joseph, Context: Perhaps you think the Creator sent you here to dispose of us as you see fit. If I thought you were sent by the Creator, I might be induced to think you had a right to dispose of me. Do not misunderstand me, but understand fully with reference to my affection for the land. I never said the land was mine to do with as I choose. The one who has a right to dispose of it is the one who has created it. I claim a right to live on my land and accord you the privilege to return to yours. Speech rejecting the demands that he lead his people onto a reservation. (1876)
