George Copway
Customs and Censure
printer friendly version
Among the Indians there have been no written laws. Customs
handed down from generation to generation have been the
only laws to guide them. Every one might act different from
what was considered right did he choose to do so, but such
acts would bring upon him the censure of the Nation....
This fear of the Nation's censure acted as a mighty band,
binding all in one social, honorable compact.

(Ojibwa chief)
