I am not a Cheyenne, but what I read seems only to be a comparison of some sort. When I was little about 8 years my father made me watch a movie about Sand Creek. Hollywood or not the movie was accurate about the massacre. I get tired of Indigenous Native Americans making big issues out of some things little. People getting involved with the Redskins thing and they're not even from that area or whatever, just to get some recognition or as some say "just to be seen". I am glad we had ancestors who fought HARD enough to keep some of us alive. We as Native American people are all in this together. Why not say something about being called Indians, we are not INDIANS, they are from India. My older brother always told me not to introduce myself as an Indian.
