Nothing that happened 200 years ago causes any rationally intelligent person to abuse substances TODAY. To believe so makes us backwards social wards who still wail at the pleasing of the Great White Father or brands you as irrational.

In a previous post, WocusWoman beseeched Natives to teach their children to "choose wisely." I couldn't agree more. Step one? "Get past using 200 years ago as an excuse." Step two? "Get past quantum." Step three? "Move forward."

Failure to do so brings about downfall. ENJOY.
FOR REAL ZEKE, THIS AGAIN?

I care more about todays issues & most of us have repeatedly told you the SAME thing.

Now we all know you hate the quantum thing & say it's culture but this is what confuses me. If you hate the traditional culture so much why do you want us defined this way? Is it so we will decide your not NDN since you hate the traditional culture. Or is it cause you got a bunch of wannabe friends with a non-traditional culture they have invented & you want them in. I'm just so confused by your 2 continuing conflicting statements.
