Quotes by Camilla Townsend  (?)

“For who can say which is the more empowered, them or us, if we can speak to each other successfully across the chasm of time and difference? Do we ourselves not become wiser and stronger every time we grasp the perspective of people whom we once dismissed?”
Camilla Townsend

“it is rare, though, that a great wrong is committed by one people against another without some among the perpetrators protesting the deed.”
Camilla Townsend, Pocahontas and the Powhatan Dilemma: The American Portraits Series

“As part of the evolving belief that the Indians would be only too glad to become literal and figurative tribute-payers to the English nation, contemporary scholars had worked out an interesting theory: the indigenous Americans, they claimed, were very much like the ancient Britons--who had themselves been civilized by the Romans. This theory was both condescending and yet at the same time beautifully unprejudiced. On the one hand, it justified English insistence that they were superior in every regard at the present time; on the other, it acknowledged that there were no differences between English and natives.”
