Steve, we're all behind you to lead us all down this rainbow-colored path. With the all too common speech against 'colonialism' and 'european influence', there is just as much prejudice, bigotry and racism internally amongst First Nations people. Sadly, it is prevelant among family members, and communities. The Common Oppressor is themselves (ourselves) and onto each others. As much as people want to blame the white man for their problems, it doesn't make sense to ally with black people who have equally just as much oppression to them-selves and each others. For indian nations, to blame "Washington" for lacking tribal resources, allows tribal governments to operate irresponsibly in plain view. Indian peoples need and must hold their tribal officials accountable as it is no longer just the "bad white man".
