Fermín de Francisco Lasuén de Arasqueta
“Here are aborigines whom we are teaching to be men, people of vicious and ferocious habits who know no law but force, no superior but their own free will, and no reason but their own caprice. A people without education, without government, religion or respect for authority, and they shamelessly pursue without restraint whatever their brutal appetites suggest to them. Their inclination to lewdness and theft is on par with their love for the mountains. Such is the character of the men we are to correct and whose crimes we must punish"
