Tenaya quote
February 06, 2012 11:17AM
Can anyone helpf me find the quote from Chief Tenaya when he was being let out of the valley with his people? It has something to do with "...even if we leave here, we will remian in the rocks and the trees...." there is a lot more to it, but I just can't seem to find the exact quote and it's source. PLEASE HELP! I'd greatly appreciate it!!
Thank you!

Perhaps this:

"I will not leave my home, but be with the spirits among the rocks, the waterfalls, in the rivers and in the winds; wherever you go I will be with you. You will not see me but you will fear the spirit of the old chief and grow cold. The Great Spirit has spoken. I am done."
