I would be a little suspicous of these "occupy wall street" events. I am sure their are some well intentioned people there it seems like the events are just to vague. No student loans, climate change, bank bailouts, unemployment extension, no border, etc. Just a generation ago Wall Street and Bankers were often code word for Jew. If you add the 99% vs the 1% thing, it sounds very similar to the national socialist party's fight against big business and the wealthy. The same rhetoric that you hear the protesters yelling at the protests sound eerily similar to old nazi propaganda. "They ruined our economy." "their greed is responsible for our suffering" "they get rich while we stay poor" "we are slave to them" As far as all of the authors personal native history it seems kind of silly. I don't think Geronimo or Sitting Bull would have been hanging out with the hipsters and drop outs that you see in "occupation" protests.
