colorow in
the denver post
In '88, the year before he died:
`The Whites have asked for Colorow's removal
And the latter persists in staying on the ground.
He is by nature ugly and mean-tempered
And cannot be scared off or bluff ed away.
This, coupled with his notion that he owns
The land, which has become a passion with him,
Has made it very unpleasant, and at times
Dangerous for the settlers.'
his small joke in a ute council
...The old man said to the whites:
All right, we give you some land
For your presents, only
You must take it away with you.
We do not want your land
Lying around over our country.
