Obidiah Message to the new minister.
On the occasion of a new minister being appointed to be in charge of Indians. (Okay, a month after he was appointed. I've been busy preparing for the spring flood don't you know.)
Welcome, to our world.
So, here you are a white man. In charge of “Indians” eh? So isn't that a fine kettle of fish? How does your training and “civil society” steer through that one eh? But actually, it's easy. I mean you're elected to Parliament to serve the country and this is a part of that. You didn't... I mean we didn't design this arrangement. We were born into it eh? Yes. So let us see what things we will make of it.
