The Walking Eagle
The President addressed a gathering of the American Indian Nation in New York State. He spoke for an hour on his future plans for increasing the Native American’s standard of living. He affirmed that as President he had supported every Indian issue that came before him. The President was vague on details of his plan, although he was enthusiastic about future ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”
At the conclusion of his speech, the chief presented the President with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name – “Walking Eagle.” The President then proudly departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.
The press closed in on the chief:
News reporter: “Chief, could you tell us why you selected that Indian name for The President ?”
Chief: “Walking Eagle is a name given to a bird so full of Shit it cannot fly.”:)
