I partly agree with Dinagw. Joy Harjo speaks and writes for Joy Harjo. She does not represent American Indians. Her personally experiences of being an American Indian are just that. If she wishes to be connected to Israel, then that's her personal business. Time and time again, people want one, two, etc., people to represent American Indians and sometimes an American Indian will try to take it upon themselves to "speak" for all of us. This is not so and never will be. I represent myself as a Navajo man and try to conduct myself according to what the Holy People guide me to. I do not represent the Navajo, nor do they represent me. If, a few represent the masses, then "Indians are all drunks". That's what I grew up hearing. That's my point. Thank you.
