Artist's Description

This pair of Bald Eagles are our Winter residents at Wind River Ranch, they usually have their offspring to teach them how to fish the Naches River.

This photo was inspired by the words of Cherokee Chief “Two Eagles”, who was asked by a white U.S. Government official, “You have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen the wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the damage he’s done.” The chief nodded in agreement. The official continued, “Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?”
The chief stared at the official for over a minute and then calmly replied,
“When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex.”
Then the Chief leaned back and smiled, “Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.”

I was reminded of Chief Two Eagles today, by Elsie Duggan, who forwarded me an email about these wise words spoken and very tough to argue ;)
