Chief Maquinna, Nootka:

"Once I was in Victoria, and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank and that
the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and that by and by they got it
back with interest. "We are Indians and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or
blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, and by and by they return them
with interest, and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank."

I compare that to what we 'have' to teach our children (in order for them to 'get by or even 'succeed') and it makes me feel like crying for us all.
