Sad but true.
Many, not all American Indians have taken up the White man's ways...........but a few are keeping their traditions alive.
My best friend has shown me what her grandmother taught her dance wise and she teaches the Chippewa language.
Her mother that recently passed was sent to a "state school" to drum out the "injun ways" and incorporate Christianity and "the American" way
into her and her sister.
Aunt Bess resisted (internally and never lost sight of her heritage). My girlfriend's mother, while still upholding some of their traditions, was
more mentally conditioned.
Funny how the New World Order is trying to stamp out the indigenous traditions and make us all into one Barb and Ken doll world.
Easier to control I guess.
