  • Being a Native means more than living there

    By Charles Finn

    Psychologist Carl Jung once made a surprising prophecy about Americans. He said we will ultimately become Indians – Natives of this place. He also said that if we don’t become Natives, we will die, and our place will die, as well.

    Some people have the notion that living somewhere for a long period of time finally makes one a native. As a child growing up in a small town on the East Coast, I was half-feral. I knew every inch of the town intimately, including the back alleys, the open fields, the rivers and train tracks. I spent my days wandering the creek – called a brook in the East – that ran through the village.
