This is undeniable proof that the " the preverbial pen is mightier than the sword". Every attack upon in Reserved Treaty Rights, Native American communities and life must be responded to by Native Americans themselves. The media controls the publics image or stereotype by what it presents as freedom of speech. I have learned that their freedom of speech most often is as you state unrepresentative of the entire race, What the media syllogizes as an inability of Native Americans to contemporarily adapt to existing within the dominate society is the new age attack on our Reserved Rights. There is so much poverty simply because courts throughout America do not interpret laws free of personal bias. Many of those remanding legal decisions pertaining to our Reserved/Inherent Treaty Rights have never met an Native! So they act upon what is published or presented by the media as gospel. As long as Native Americans refuse to respond accordingly to these ignorant attacks or prostilization of who we are today the public ignorance will remain and only grow!
