Keeping the Chain Bright

Why is it in reviewing Native perspectives towards a forever continuing lasting tribute, by using the term," Keeping the Chain Bright" only applied to them and not the Europeans whom had dealings with them?

As in the past  All the dealings with these European scoundrels soon ceased after their dealings with them were fulfilled.

Keeping the chain bright is a verbal contractual agreement between both parties involved,

which was dispensed as soon as they,( Europeans), had no further use for it!
