Great article. I tell my kids their are different tribes in the country. Some are winners and others are whiners. Mainstream society likes to lump us together as a generic "native american" term. It doesn't make sense for people to take pity on my children or for them to feel sorry for themselves because of the trail of tears or massacre at wounded knee. Instead I teach them that their ancestors were not victims and they shouldn't let anybody feel sorry them.
