Some years back, I was in what could loosely be called a Native leadership position. Overall, I accomplished my goals but couldn't change a culture rooted in the 1960s. I try not to think about it much anymore but, nearly universally, the input I receive during a blue moon is that "you were ten years too early."

So, yes, folks do pay attention and will let you know what they felt -- even if it wasn't said then -- when they perceive the time to be right.

I'm glad I sweated in jeans in the hot sun, even if I never carry a chair out to the drum again: it's the way I was taught.
