Should We Pity The Heathen? '
Some of U9 are inclined to pitr the Indian and the
heathen and such folk as haven't our present enlighten
ineut nor the joys of our present civilization. And we
labor rather earnestly to raise them intellectually and
morally and socially to our own standards.
It is all right of course to help them as much as
possible. But do we need to pity them? Isn't pity
out of place, a sort of one-sided and short-sighted
viewpoint of the situation?
The thought was driven home to me at that San
Diego Exposition. A building there is devoted exclusively to an ex
position of Indian life. Models are shown of Indian villages and the
manner of living of all the known tribes. There are exhibits of In
dian dress, Indian implements of cookery, Indian pottery all the
things that have to do with their living, even to the little cradle hoods
and swings made of tough grass ropes for the wee ones.
Looking at these things, one sees the Indian life, its primitive
ness, its crudeness, its hardship. And the temptation is to pity them,
to snatch them from these conditions, to thrust civilization upon
But are they to be pitied? And would civilization thrust willy
nilly upon a primitive people tnnke them happy?
Isn't it a matter of unfoldmeut? They are living at present up to
what they know of life. We can help them to know more. But will
we make them happy by thrusting a fuller exrression of life upon
them before they are ready for it? Is it not like giving to a baby the
meat and drink of a man and expecting him to enjoy it. Wouldn't
we in all probability only give him the colic?
It is possible that there are beings superior to us who are looking
upon our condition with pity and think what poor, benighted indivi
duals we are. But would we be happy on their plane before we are
sufficiently developed to understand, appreciate and assimilate life as
it is lived there? This doesn't mean we should not strive to advance.
Unfoldmeut is progress, But it must come naturally, not artificially.
We mustn't be taken by the scruff of the neck, so to speak, and thrust
into an environment for which we are not yet readv. This process
does not bring happiness but only misery. And so in insisting that
all peoples be clothed upon with our idea of civilization, are we ex
actly just to them, are we helping them in the truest way?
Do you not think that each phase of unfoldment brings its own
satisfaction, its own joy in living? Is not the Indian and others of
his kind happy in his present knowledge of life and his present ex
pression of it? Would he be happy if before he is ready for it we try
to thrust upon him an expression beyond his power to grasp? Would
we not simply bring disturbance, disorder, contusion into his life, put
him into a state of perplexed bewilderment without giving him any
thing to restore order and peace, because what we do thrust into his
hands he is yet unable to use and appreciate"
We can gently help him to grow. We can put. before him the
next good for him to assimilate, that by looking upon it he may grow
into it. But I am not sure that we have any right to pitv him, for he
is in the scale of development where he has ben placed by One higher
and wiser than we. And in this phase of development, he is no
doubt finding the joy that is inheient in it. And if we have his truest
good at heart, we must let him unfold according to the great plan,
move on when he is readv for the next move. We live so fast these
days, we are so determined to improve everything and everybody, that
we think we must slip a ready-made dress of civilization upon every
one not garbed to our liking. But should we? And ist't it also some
what egotistical and self-righteous to pity those who from our point of
view seem to be unenlightened and uncivilized? Haven't they as
much right to be content in their condition as we have in ours?
