Identity crisis – archived

 

“He ought to know better”.  The judgement of the new chief on Bodie.  Brought up in the Indian Nations  ..  sided with the White-eyes’  ..  taken on their behaviours.  Disrespecting the buffalo and the ways of the tribes.

Rely

Identity crisis

 

They respected the buffalo, its right to roam free.  The Indian Nations, too  ..  following in its footsteps  ..  taking just what they needed  ..  living in harmony  …..
By what right  …..?  These White-eyes  …..?  What gave them the right  ……?

One of their own, brought up in the tribes ….. he ought to know better!

Wheel of fire

Identity crisis

 

The crimes were unforgiveable.  Enclosing land where the buffalo had freely roamed.  Claiming it as their own.  Trickery.  Murder of their chief.
One had got away,  But this White-eyes traitor remained.  Deserted the tribes  ..  adopted the White-man’s ways  ……

Only one way for the costs to be settled ………

Dying of the heat

Identity crisis

As a boy he’d been expelled from his mother’s tribe.  He grew to be a young man in the tribe that had taken him in.  Wars between tribes ran through his memories.

As did the horrors he’d seen taken in retribution ….. Bodie knew.

Wheel of torture

Identity crisis

 

Against his better judgement.  But desperate times called for desperate measures.  And the medicine-man had agreed.  He’d let the White-eyes heal the chief.  With the reward that HIS death would be quick.

He’d trusted. And now he had been betrayed …….

Dawn

Identity crisis

 

It had always been a risky plan.  Pinning their hopes on Joe getting away  ..  on sleeping guards  ..  on Joe stealing a horse  ..  galloping away unheard.  Risky.  But what other options had they had?

And that dread moment …. when the tribe found Joe gone ……

Tunnel of death

Identity crisis

 

A captive brave, taken in war  …..  the tribe deserved retribution  ..  for their own men  killed  ..  for possessions lost.   A long lingering death  ..  expression of their anger  ..  worthy of their hate.  The enemy’s last hours spent knowing nothing but anger and pain  …..

But finally it always ended one way …….
