When Aldron and Armstrong were selected to make the trip to the moon, they trained in a Western US location. There, they encountered an elderly Native American who asked them what they were doing. Finding out they were "going to the moon," the old man paused and asked a favor. He requested they take a special message. His people believed spirits lived on the moon and he wanted to seize the opportunity to communicate with them. The astronauts agreed. The old man made them practice over and over until they could recite the expression perfectly. But what does it mean old man? The old man said, I cannot tell you it must remain secret. After training, the astronauts searched the town over looking for someone that could translate the expression. They finally found someone that chuckled before revealing the meaning: "Dont believe a word these people say. They will take your land."
