"Whenever the statesmen of the League shall assemble they shall offer thanks to the earth where men dwell, to the streams of water, the pools and lakes, to the maize and the fruits. The eagle...is able to see afar. If he sees in the distance any danger threatening, he will at once warn the people of the league.
