Steven Newcomb's writings reflect the progressive thinking native indigenous peoples of the America's are now using. We Natives must always be mindfull of the true intent the colonizers have and continue to pursue. We once had respected leaders that fought and died attempting to protect our human rights, then came the politically elected tribal representatives, thoses who have been educated by the non-natives and either forgot or set aside their tribal teachings. Now the younger native generations are comparing the directions taken by the "respected leaders" and the "political representitives", they see true leadership is needed, not representatives pursuing special interests for a few. Steven, I am an old native man, I believe I can see your vision, keep educating yourself and others for we need your wisdom. "Buzz an Old School Native"
