Warriors are not what you think of as warriors…

Warrior hippie peaceFrom Hippie Peace Freaks

“Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.”

    Here’s another quote from Sitting Bull from around 1876: β€œThese dead soldiers are the gifts of Wanka Tanka. Kill them, but do not take their guns or horses. Do not touch the spoils. If you set your hearts upon the goods of the white man, it will prove to be the downfall of this nation.”

    I too cannot find any sources for the quote in the meme above, altho it is widely circulated by Native pacifists as proof that we must abide by their pacifist methods.
