The native hawaiians received an apology letter signed by Bill Clinton. It meant a lot to the indigenous people in hawaii.

Othellobloke, I don't understand why people are getting on your case. I have no problem with you. Zeke, doesn't know any better, so don't mind anything he says. I too question as to why many american indians are in the military. But the question seems to be answered and summed up to, we are warriors, we are survivors. This is where we are from, we need to help protect it.

The thing with is when one of the 'popular' users start looking down upon you, all their followers will do the same. That's how it is here, people can't think on their own, which saddens me. That's the wanabe mentality.

I know you're just trying to understand, and i'm glad people see that and are helping you. Good luck.
I'm interested more in self determination than gender equity. In other words, changing white men for white woman in the structures of power, does nothing to transform the opression in my community.
