Thank you, Amigo...

I have nothing but reverence for Native Americans. I don't have the whole "white guilt" thing as I wasn't personally responsible for anything. But considering what whites have done (and continue to do) over the last 300 years, I do feel that we have a long way to go to give back to them what was taken. A very long, long way to go. And we'll never be able to give back what was taken spiritually or the humanity that was desecrated. I am doing what I can in my own way, giving what I can when it's possible. I've learned the hard way which charities to avoid and have wasted a lot of money on the wrong organizations before getting schooled about that. Dealing directly with the tribe is the best way, they know best what to do with gifts.

Glad that you have found some trust. I know I have a long time to get to that point and that's OK. At 55, I'll be here for a while still.
