I respect your words, and think I do see what you mean.
So why do I come here? Why should anybody care?
Do I have some idea I am going to find lost spirituality, (totally understand about the religion thing) or have some fancy product to sell, (not unless you consider sheep fancy) or aim to write the next romantic blockbuster
The real reason? I can read here about the things of concern to this Nation (Keystone for example). When you write about your history and through this understanding I honor (no, not worship) an ancient people and their ways, who were here long before the boat people.
Here is a place anyone who takes the time can understand a tiny bit how life really was, and is, and the everyday issues, real, not just what television wants you to believe. Only a strong people could still be enduring.
There are people out there who really have a heart for the Lakotah. Don't sell the forum short is all I am asking. Almost everyone I have forwarded the Aaron Huey link too ends up in tears knowing it is just plain wrong to have anyplace in America to be this poor especially for the kids. Give it time.
So I agree...it is good to hear different opinions and ideas. I also see things a little differently now my friend.
