1 Wintu Proverb.



1. When we Indians kill meat, we eat it all up. When we dig roots, we make little holes. When we build houses, we make little holes. When we burn grass for grasshoppers, we don't ruin things. We shake down acorns and pine nuts. We don't chop down the trees. We only use dead wood.. Wintu Proverb. When we Indians kill meat, we eat it all up. When we dig roots, we make little holes.
