A couple screencaps are missing because of how many photos can be a tumblr photoset. The full text, from the film Reel Injun, goes like this.

(Narration): James can remember how many of the Navajo actors would go off-script in some scenes, joking around in their own language. No one ever bothered to translate what was said until now.

(Scene from A Distant Trumpet, 1964)

(White man, presumably a soldier, in English): If I do not return, General Quait will find you, and you will be dead and all your people.

(Presumably the chief of the tribe, in Navajo, left untranslated in the 1964 film): Just like a snake you’ll be crawling in your own shit.

(The soldier): No. He is not a fool, you are.

(The chief): Obviously you can’t do anything to me. You’re a snake crawling in your own shit.

(Narration): After playing the bonehead savage for so many years, the Navajo get their sweet revenge.
