beware these men

There is an ancient Indian saying:

Something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant & immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous & unwise.
Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember & seek the truth.
 – Floyd ‘Red Crow’ Westerman
