Bangali Settlement in the Hill Tracts and the Peace Accord
"A treaty, in the minds of our people, is an eternal word.
Events often make it seem expedient to depart from the pledged
word, but we are conscious that the first departure creates a
logic for the second departure, until there is nothing left of the word."
---Declaration of Indian Purpose (1961) American Indian Chicago Conference
