The Last Supper
Ovide Bighetty, Pukatawagan First Nations

"I love a people who always made me welcome to the best they had . . .

Who are honest without laws, who have no jails and no poor-house . . .

who never take the name of God in vain . . .

who worship God without a Bible, and I believe that God loves them also . . .

who are free from religious animosities . . .

who have never raised a hand against me, or stolen my property, where there was no law to punish either . . .

who never fought a battle with white men except on their own ground . . .
And oh! how I love a people who don't live for the love of money."

George Catlin.
