1964 – Indian Treaties

The Times: The Times of March 3 contained an editorial stating: "there is a question, however, as to what extent pre Civil War treaties (with the Indians) and the rights or wrongs of that long-ago era should be applicable today." We made treaties with the Indians, and the white man hasn’t kept any of them. It’s about time that we do. If these so-called treaties are so old that they are not effective any more, then perhaps we ought to scrap the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as they were written before any agreements with the Indians.
