in my own eyes, being indian is having no one to pass the teachings of my grandfathers', the younger generation is more interested in theirselves instead of others.

the white man has stores, our children forgot how to garden
the white man has houses, our children forgot how to build our lodges,
the white man has cars, our children forget how to ride a horse
the white man has cell phones, our children forgot how to listen
the white man has education, our children forgot what is important to the people
being indian is having no one to talk to, because the children aren't interested
