: OK. A good quote and then I swear I'll drop the subject. From a really good book, "The American Revolution in Indian Country: Crisis and Diversity in Native American Communities," by Colin G. Calloway, 1995, Cambride University Press, pg. 11.

: "Choctaws at the Mobile congress in the winter of 1771-2, complained graphically that traders shortchanged them so often that the flaps of cloth provided as loin cloths '"dont cover our secret parts, and we are in danger of being deprived of our manhood by every hungry dog that approaches."' Proceedings of a congress held by John Stuart with the Chicasaw and Choctaw Nation, Dec. 31, 1771. (His was the name I was trying to reacll in an earlier post.)
