What of the Indian's head in the present badge?

"What of the Indian's head in the present badge? The Indian plays his part in the development of America. Hiawatha contributed the idea of confederation to the early citizens of the country. Probably the dagger seemed to the designer of the new badge more effective when it was used; so he stuck it through the Indian's head. Just as the average American was the victor over this ancient enemy, so the educated man will be the victor over all obstructive forces." (3)
