I left reservation life and my native people, the Oglala Sioux, because I was no longer willing to endure existence under the control of an overseer. For about the same number of years I had tried to live a peaceful and happy life; tried to adapt myself and make re-adjustments to fit the white man’s mode of existence. 
But I was unsuccessful. I developed into a chronic disturber. 
I was a bad Indian, and the agent and I never got along. I remained a hostile, even a savage, if you please. And I still am. 
I am incurable.
