“The Peacemaker taught us about the Seven Generations. He said, when you sit in council for the welfare of the people, you must not think of yourself or of your family, not even of your generation. He said, 'make your decisions on behalf of the Seven Generations coming, so that they may enjoy what you have today'.”
