A SKETCH
OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT’S DEALINGS
WITH SOME OF THE INDIAN TRIBES

Every human being born upon our continent, or who comes here
from any quarter of the world, whether savage or civilized, can go
to our courts for protection—except those who belong to the tribes
who once owned this country. The cannibal from the islands of the
Pacific, the worst criminals from Europe, Asia, or Africa, can appeal
to the law and courts for their rights of person and property—all,
save our native Indians, who, above all, should be protected from
wrong. Gov. Horatio Seymour
