  • An NDN Christmas

    by Amy Stiffarm:

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through Walmart

    All the NDNZ were shopping and filling up their carts.

    The Crows were all hustling with money from their percap

    While the Siouxs were struggling to pick up the slack.

    The Blackfeet were up searching all around

    For the perfect sale price sure to be found.

    Some shelves were empty, some shelves were full

    The best stuff was on top, too high for Apaches to pull.

    Out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter

    All the nosey NDNZ went to see what’s the matter.

    With their big bellies jiggling pound for pound

    All the Gros-Ventres went out to see what was going down.

    Hoos, ayes, and inits filled the air

    Followed by “Ho heck who’s that over there?”

    Over by the dumpster a figure lay

    Right next to eight war ponies hooked onto a sleigh.

    As the NDNZ got closer they could tell this NDN wasn’t too thin

    It must have taken eight deer to make all that buckskin.

    As he arose from the ground you could see his attire

    Everything was beaded the same color as fire.

    All the NDNZ wiped their eyes full with disbelief

    Holy heck, could it really be the big Jolly Chief?

    With his white hair in braids and his smile so grand

    He looked up and asked, “Hey cuzzints! Can you give me a hand?”

    Assiniboines, Cheyennes, Salish, Crees and Kootenais too

    All gathered around to see what they could do.

    “I have half the world left to go and my sleigh won’t fly,”

    The Big Jolly Chief said with a tear in his eye.

    “Don’t worry Chief,” the NDNZ started to shout

    “We’ll make your sleigh fly, well help you out.”

    Back into Walmart all the skinz ran

    They knew what to do, they had a plan.

    The NDNZ spread out covering the store

    Loading up on plastic and duct tape galore.

    They all went back to work on the sleigh

    But it didn’t work out, they couldn’t fix it…AYE!!

    Heck all them NDNZ were sure going to town

    They weren’t gonna let the Big Jolly Chief down.

    By the time they were done fixing the sleigh up

    The Chief just got done eating some pup.

    Over the back window, the plastic was draped

    The whole heckin’ sleigh was chrome from duct tape.

    It was three different colors rather than one

    But the NDNZ were sure that it would run.

    This sleigh was so rezzy then when the Chief turned it on

    The beastiest noise came from this rez bomb.

    They brought out the war ponies, their sides freshly painted

    And hooked them to the sleigh, with their manes beautifully braided.

    The Big Jolly Chief turned to the NDNZ with a smile so bright

    “Thank you Cuzzints for all your hard work tonight!

    Let’s go war ponies, let’s roll out”

    The ponies started to fly when he began to shout.

    As he flew off he turned on the radio in his sleigh

    Jammin’ to round dance tunes he flew away.

    He swung back around and everyone saw

    As he yelled to the NDNZ, “Merry Christmas! Ya-way-ha!”

    ...that's so, so true...

                  One time this Chief of an Indian Tribe sent out scouts to hunt down some game. The scouts were successful and so life was good for the time being.
                  One night the enemy came into their encampment and stole all the horses from the Indians.

                  The GIs were dirty, mosquito-bitten, fatigued, homesick. They had been on the road almost constantly for two weeks. Many had not slept in days.

                  At dawn on April 4, they arrived at Saddam International Airport to the sound of sporadic gunfire and the acrid smell of distant explosions. Breakfast...
