“I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed...The old men are all dead. He who led the young men is dead...it is cold, and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to death...I want to have time to look for my children and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever.” Chief Joseph, Nez Perce, 1877
Lemmiein's Genealogy Resources
Welcome all who
are searching for those elusive forefathers!
I hope to be able
to provide various and useful links to those who are searching for their
American Indian ancestors. This is my first attempt at building a homepage
and as my skills improve, I hope this site improves along with it. If you
have any suggestions or know of any useful pieces of information, by all
means, E-mail me and I will do my best to include them in here. I am undecided
as to whether to focus on the North American tribes or to also eventually
include tribes throughout the western hemisphere. What is your view? E-mail
me and let me know. And please....sign my guestbook!
I hope to include some links
as well to various sites where some beautiful American Indian artwork can
be seen. Artwork on this page is used only by the permission of the artist/photographer
or is not under copyright protection. If you see ANY artwork here that
is not under these categories, PLEASE E-mail me.
