@BigIndianGyasi fails yet again in an overwrought attempt to carry forward what he mistakenly presumes to be a NA narrative. Kudos to commenters stevef and indianmedicine for their talents of discernment and capacity to "nail it." BTW, assertions in last paragraph, "We are not isolated." and "Native media has to ...start working with other communities of color..." bring to mind the secession of National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) from the coalition Unity: Journalists of Color, refusing the invitation extended by President Rhonda Vivaldo to its annual conference--ended just last week. Reaction to this dissolution prompted comment by bearclaw (Indianz.com) who parodied Southern segregationist George Wallace, "Segregation yesterday, segregation today, segregation forever!" Check with Ms. Vivaldo. Here's another parody: "Do we really have a rez dog in this hunt?"
