I don't know a thing about Native American culture. I have read science articles on it, but would like to talk to some Native American people as well. \

BTW, so far I have been reading. I like the statement regarding Maple Syrup.


You aren't going to find what you're looking for here. First, there are more than 500 tribes, so when you say Native American culture it's a very broad term. Second, even if you did decide you want to include the "culture" of a specific tribe, there isn't one NDN in these forums who will be willing to share with you. This is beacause of the REAL history of our continent. Culture, a.k.a. intellectual property has a value and a purpose. It is often miss-used and miss-interpreted.

respectfully,

Guy
