A Swallow Press Book

I Have Spoken
American History Through the Voices of the Indians

By Virginia I. Armstrong

Intro. by Frederick W. Turner III

I Have Spoken is a collection of American Indian oratory from the 17th to the 20th century, concentrating on speeches focusing around Indian-white relationships, especially treaty-making negotiations. A few letters and other writings are also included.

Here, in their own words, is the Indian's story told with integrity, with drama, with caustic wit, with statesmanship, with poetic impact; a story of proffered friendship, of broken promises, of hope, of disillusionment, of pride, of a whole land and life gone sour.
