The Record of a Noble Redman
By Garrett P. Serviss.
THE story of Chief White
Eagle, the Cheyenne Indian,
who died while fighting in
tho American Army in Franco and
who bequeathed his war dress to
the American Museum of Natural
History, is one of the most inter
esting that 1 know. It is a very
significant story, too, as showing
what education can and cannot do.
White Eagle was a graduate or
the Carlisle Indian School. He
knew both sides of American his
tory the white man's side from his
books, and the Rod Man's side
from the traditions of his ances
tors. He cherished the memory,
and retained some of tho customs
and ideas of his people, but he was
a thoroughly loyal American, and,
with throe of his brothers, offered
his life to defend the life and the
honor of his country a country
whose' broad acres, whoso moun
tains, forests and valleys were
fundamentally his rather than the
His gallant deeds in Franco and
his doath under the flag and In
tho uniform of the United Statos
were a sharp robuke to that brutal
and too ofton approvingly quoted
phrase of some narrow-minded, sel
fish, white-skinned rooter for for
tune: "The ouly good Indian Is a
Why should White Eagle not
have fought, and died for America?
Who could call him an Interloper?
This land belonged to his race be
fore the walls of Babylon arose,
before King Minos built the laby
rinth, before Rome wag founded.
Even pre-history Is not long enough
to suggest a date for the beginning
of the red man's occupation of tho
American continent. That occu-
! pation runs back into the geologi
cal ages, if It was the . result of
an Immigration from the eastern
world, which is not certain, its be
ginning must be sought in that re
mote and uncalculated time when
the ocean waters Vere spanned
by "land-bridges" if they ever
were so, spanned.
Perhaps those speculative think
ers who believe that the hiiiimu
race originated around the -aorth
pole, at a period when a genial cli
mate prevailed there, may be on
the right track, in which case the
red man may be as old, and as in
dependent in origin, as the white
man and the yellow man, and coin
cldently with them may have sot
out from the polar Eden, choosing
the American side of the world for
Tho only serious indictment
that has ever been lodged against
the American red man Is based
upon the fact that ho did not de
velop the white man's type of
civilization, and did not increase
and multiply and overtax the
earth and nature with swarming
numbors and Insistent, spurring
demands, as we have done. Pos
sibly a cosmic court would not find
him guilty of any crime on that
BCore. Did the history of America
in pre-Columbian days offer any
thing more hellish than wliat
White Eagle faced when he fought
with and against white men in
Here, as I write, glancing at an
opened history of America, I read
this sentence: "The most hopo
less feature in connection with the
Indian problem 13 that the race
seems incapable of civilization."
Disregarding tho gigantc as
sumption made In that sentence
about the saving value of tho kind
of civilization that his white con-
querors have tried to force upon
the rod man, what become? of lho
assertion that he Is incapable of
civilisation when .tested, by -White
Eagle's last act, that of-bequeathing
his ..war costume w-a white
man's museum a costumc care
fully made. v,Uh his own hands
after the ancient model leaving'
it as a historic document for future.-
"generations lo study and
ponder? . That act seems to me a
very notable example of the broadest-mi
(led 1 ind of civilization.
And what about his three , broth
ers wh-j ioue..c .a inc.. side, and
about the hundreds of other mem
bers of their race who battled oh '
the same bloody fields for the
freedom of tho world? Were they
"incapable of civilization?"
No, tho Indian has proved that
he is capable oven of the white
man's civilization in Jts essential
elements. But he has also proved
that education in the white man's
schools and ways does not, as It
should not, entirely remake hi3
nature. In the way of religion he
has as good a foundation as we
have. He believes and always has
believed In the Great Spirit. He
has, to bo sure, associated many
superstitious notions and practises
with his rollglon.
Very well, hnve we, In the long
course of our history, done better ,
in that respect? Perhaps he can
not give you a very clear definition
of what he means by the Great
Spirit, but can we do any better?
Have wo found out God, or caught
Him in a formula? For my p'art I
believe the Indian is just as near
Cod as we are. And I believe God
is Just as near to an Indian teepeo
as Ho Is to a Wall Street brokcn'3
office, or to a great, smoking,
champing, nervc-dciislcatln? Indus
trial establishment. The. Indian's
industries did not ma.ko the world
a purgatory for half Its Inhabi
tants. - - j
