10/24/13



My son, you are now flesh
and bone of our bone. By the
ceremony performed this day,
every drop of white blood was
washed from your veins; you
were taken into the Shawnee
nation . . . you were adopted
into a great family.
- BLACK FISH, SHAWNEE
AT THE TRIBAL ADOPTION OF DANIEL
BOONE, 1778
