Dear Editor ,

 

Would you like it if people pushed you out of your home ? So , don't do the same thing to the Indians .

 

Indians should have the right to say if they want to move because it's their land . Why don't you just stay at your home instead of taking Ponca's land ? Why don't you just leave them alone? Like Standing Bear should have the right to go back to the Niobrara and bury his son . No one should have the right to arrest Standing Bear . Just give back the land to the Ponca's . It's not that hard . My father, Iron Eye ,told me to not to lose your spirit and home . So I start thinking of the Poncas and wrote this letter .

Sincerely,

Susan LaFlesche
