I certainly see your point Kakeeya. Our tribes in Oklahoma have a different History than most Indians in the US. We have not had reservations since 1906. They broke them up and gave the land to individual families and of course any EXTRA to white folks. Some of us are lucky and still have our grandparents allotments and some communities have tribal componds etc. But breaking up the rez forced indians out into the white world more than ever. Some tribes with large populations stayed close but small tribes got scattered around. There are 10 mixed bloods for every full blood. In some tribes half or even quarter IS ALL THAT IS LEFT.
My uncle told me a story about his uncle back in the 50,s. They were at inlonskha (Osage war dance) Uncle said old man looked around at the dancers " Look, nephew; black hair, black hair, brown hair, blonde hair, black hair.. This dance is starting to look like a spotted horses a$$.
