How about getting back on track with the original question.

What is most important to you, that Whites know about our people?

Perhaps looking at a few other questions may help.

What are the most common myths and stereotypes about NDN people that you would like to see dissolved?

How who you go about educating the dominant White society about the truths concerning NDN people?

Is it more important for white society to be educated on the detailed diversity of hundreds of different tribes and nations with different cultures, traditions and languages, or is it more important for white society to be educated on the true common factors that are found in all NDN (Indigenous) cultures?

Is it important that white society knows that NDN people can come together at Pow-Wows, with different cultural backgrounds, yet be unified in their desire to be good and kind and helpful, and show high ideals of sharing and giving?
