Rutherford B. Hayes Quotes: I See No Reason Why Indians Who Can Give

I See No Reason Why Indians Who Can Give Satisfactory Proof Of Having By Their Own Labor Supported Their Families For A Number Of Years, And Who Are Willing To Detach Themselves From Their Tribal Relations, Should Not Be Admitted To The Benefit Of The Homestead Act And The Privileges Of Citizenship, And I Recommend The Passage Of A Law To That Effect. It Will Be An Act Of Justice As Well As A Measure Of Encouragement.
— Rutherford B. Hayes —
