Help me out here

I'm trying to find a story about Red Jacket (?) where he crowds a man to the end of a log to demonstrate how the white man has encroached on the Indians' land. He keeps asking the man to move over, until the man protests that he cannot move any further, to which he replies that his people cannot move any farther over either. Is anyone familiar with this story?

Yeah. I eventually found that one too, though that is not the way I had read it originally. If I remember correctly, it was a dialogue between Red Jacket and another man, but apparently this is the actual account.

Anischi!

You're welcome. You know I seem to remember what you're talking about, but I can't put my finger on it. hmm
