SANTA! OH MY GOD! SANTA'S COMING! I KNOW HIM! I KNOW HIM! (i.e. Merry Christmas)
Our culture, our people, our languages, and our children are the greatest gifts that Indian people have. Those gifts cannot be purchased in a store or off of ebay--please be safe and enjoy the gifts that the Creator gave us that makes us uniquely "us." With that, I leave you all with some wisdom from the honorary Skin, Dr. Seuss--
“It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!”
“It came without packages, boxes or bags!”
And he ...puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
Thank you and Merry Christmas from the authors at The Thing About Skins (Robert Chanate, Christina Castro and Gyasi Ross), Don't Know Much About Indians (but i wrote a book about us anyways) and Wolfn Photographies (Levi Black Wolf).
