To what?

By remarking that such kids will (typically) have no marketable skills except in an insular society that has illusionary, masturbatory, fantasies about being a truly sovereign nation? That attending pan-indian dances while pretending that they mean something is grotesque? And, postulating like this is a GOOD thing -- because tradition is treated as religion and there is a latent fear of growth and change -- is truly SAD?

What's the point? Why should I say anything that you already know, whether you can face it or not?

Better?

You may as well just start a thread called, "truth."

Zeke - Here is some more truth :

The problem is simple ... we came from nations that gave us figures like Tecumseh and Membertou... they came from nations that... well... you get the idea.
I mean... bad choices 150 years ago.. bad choices in the present day.. I almost wonder if making poor choices IS their culture.

Then... like some immature teenager, they blame everyone else for their own piss-poor choices (read: failures).

To be honest, I find it difficult to critique choices from the past -- good or bad -- because I try to imagine that folks, then, did the best they could with what they had or could perceive.

It is now, that we're not doing that.

Many Natives are akin to head-in-the-sand ostriches...

I love Zeke's take on somethings. I have long thought the whole Romanticized, Over glorified idealized images have been very harmful. I don't truly believe Zeke means to trash traditionalism per say, but uses the shock value to drive home his point(s). Take the Black Hills reparation issue for one. His viewpoint is no less wrong than mine. However, I have to admit he has a flavor that sort of reminds me of Malcolm X. Now hold on, ...
I respected Malcolm X because he was a "no excuses, pull yourself up by your boot straps, and take no disrespect from no one" kinda guy.
Alot of what Zeke says has that tone.
Am all for a more aggressive, proactive verses reactive approach.


Zeke, coup feathers to your for venturing into the fray.
