Five fur trappers met at the mouth of the Black Canyon. Two American, one Frenchman, and two Comanche Indians.
“Well gentlemen,” started one of the American trappers. “It looks like we all want to hunt Coyote skin in the Black Canyon this year.”
Everyone signal their agreement.
“Good. We all want to sell our fur in Delta this year and we will do so if we don’t fight each other.” Again, everyone signal their agreement. “No stealing other people’s kill or shooting each other in the back.”
“Agreed, white man.” said one smiling Comanche. Both Comanche Indians laughed and left.
