The Indian Credo states:
I believe in Indian Power.
I believe in my people and their
right to be free. 1 believe in dignity
and strength and hope and security
and truth. Therefore, I believe in the
long, hard, unrelenting search for
these things. No government, no
neighborhood, no power struggle,
no back lash has the right nor the
power to choke out the breath of the
Indian community, to dull the luster
of our children's eye. to condemn our
young people to second-rate opportunity.
/ believe in Indian dignity. Indian
pride. Indian knowledge-In a great
human campaign to restore to ourselves
the image of our own strength.
I believe in my own people who are
rising into power on stepping stones
?J oppression and defeat. I believe in
the structure being raised b vour own
courage and martyred with our own
blood, if necessary. 1 hope for Indian
peace. Indian strength. Indian cooperation
in making America the greatest
and happiest nation in the world.
But I believe that the issue of the
rights of the American Indian is the
most important issue of our day. 1 do
not believe the while society can or
will solve this issue. I believe in
Indian I'ower because I don't believe
in Indian weakness; because I don't
believe in Indian Degradation, Indian
Poverty, Indian Despair, Indian
Ignorance. Indian I 'iolence, or
I believe in Indian Bower.
