Excerpts of a poem by Carlos Montezuma, Yavapai, 1866 -1923
"Changing is Not Vanishing" written in 1916
Who says the Indian race is vanishing?
The Indians will not vanish.
The feathers, paint and moccasin will vanish, but the Indians, --never!
The complete poem is available on pages 287-288 in a collection of poems with the same title, Changing is Not Vanishing.
