Seriously. Put into perspective the ratio of Hopis and Tibetans doing this to the number of Hopis and Tibetans there are in this world.

Very miniscule, eh?
Actually, you aren't that far off JD. When the movie Kundun was being made in Morocco, Martin Scorsese wanted to hire all of the Tibetan folks that had escaped the Chinese for the movie. My then boyfriend, was cast as in one of the roles and when he went to Morocco and met up with all the other exiles, it was like a huge reunion for him.

All the Tibetan exiles all know each other there are so few of them. My ex-boyfriend used to dislike al the non-Tibetans that stuck a little Tibetan flag on their bumpers/windows. He said he used to get so excited at seeing another exiles only to be greatly disappointed in seeing a new ager in the driver seat. lol

Remember that line in the new Star Trek movie when young Spock catches up to his older self at the end? The line was, "There are so few of us left, we cannot afford to ignore each other" That is how it is for the exiled Tibetans. So few got out.
