These days, it just makes me chuckle. Don't think I know a single native, warrior or otherwise, who looks like this.


If I had any camera presence whatsoever, I'd make a video called the "Life and Times of an Ndn Economist", just to balance out all the mystic clutter that seems to spew from people's orifices the second the hear the term 'native american'. Mind you, that video would probably involve 5 hours of footage of me staring at spreadsheets, cursing and showing coworkers pictures of my cats.

I'll watch it only if you promise to include a power point on the demand, supply and elasticity. ;)
