"Yes, they are well on target to brand you as a public intellectual. It’s the only way to minimize the truth and keep the distortions status-quo. In the end you have done a good job Steve, stay the course. When all else fails, they will brand you as a radical and resort to character assassination. Count it all joy when they accuse you of being an agitator of Indian leaders." What has frustrated and saddened me for many years has been..... Why haven't Echohawks confronted America's lawlessness? Books have been written....I was sad to see and hear Echohawk more or less present a synopsis of his book "In the Courts of the...." Mr. Echohawk was a guest of the University of Hawaii law school. He was beautifully dressed...his silken braids beautifully groomed..his voiced beautifully moderated... What was missing? Passion for justice was missing! No speaking of injustice. Echohawk, in all his loveliness, was presenting the way one of my professors presented his lectures many years ago. Professor could have been stuffed and wheeled out on a hand-truck to present his 'lectures.' He was cool;no emotion...he recited..he was flawless..Was Echohawk just on an appearance tour for his book? Why haven't the Echohawks ever speak against the United States'lawlessness? Why haven't the Congress of Indians? Indian media? Well, some humans such as the above do manage to slip through the barricades of media watchdogs....with targets on their backs! Sardonic Ha!
