Like a thunderbird
Before I follow the great Chiefs who have gone before us, oh Canada, I shall see these things come to pass. I shall see our young braves and our chiefs sitting in the houses of law and government, ruling and being ruled by the knowledge and freedom of our great land. So shall we shatter the barriers of our isolation?
So shall the next hundred years be the greatest and proudest in the proud history of our tribes and nations. Part of a speech by Chief Dan George of Tsleil- Waututh Nation at Canada’s centennial celebration in Vancouver in 1967.
