The Oglala...........

Father Eugene Buechel,  S.J., (Black Eagle)  priest and missionary's favorite argument was that no people in history had risen so swiftly from a primitive life to meet a strange civilization as had the Sioux.  Whereas the English, Irish, German and other European barbaric peoples had become civilized gradually over the centuries.  The Indian had been whirled into confrontation.  And yet in about 75 years they had made a marvelous adaptation. 

Rev.  Joseph Karol,  S. J.
