It ainít easy being Indian: R&B Funk and the gag-worthy age of Lady Gaga

By Ricey Wild
News From Indian Country

ďItís a sign!Ē

Indians will and do joke with each other about the most innocuous and naturally occurring daily happenstances as being a (gasp!) ďsign.ď According to the dominant cultureís verbal and literary reports we Indians of the Americas are way more in touch with Nature and live with Nature, not against it. I agree with that for the most part. No Indian I heard of ever had the blind arrogance to think we, because we are human and have opposable thumbs, were given the dominion over the beasts, birds, landÖ that saying from some old biblical passage, yanno?

But back on topic. Signs. Like if you drop something you consider significant (a rabbits foot, a ciggy butt, your kid, or you see some wolves doing something unusual like blowing down pigsí houses or your newly washed four-cornered pony (a car , Mum, dah!) got messed up by some disrespectful aerial scoundrels (a.k.a poopy birds). Anything and everything can be interpreted as a sign by an Indian; a portent of imminent events, expectations and so forth..
