From time to time, I see this issue raised and before the dust settles, feelings are hurt, people feel misunderstood and nothing is resolved. However, suppose to issue is not about blood quantum, but something more important and larger than this, which doesn't leave any room to point fingers at another since it calls into question, what are we as individuals doing about this. It seems the puppet masters behind the curtains of the federal government has played this hand well which only serve to create divisions. Especially at a time when we need to come together. This came up in a meeting today, and could be a critical hurdle in discussions around the country as to who is an Indian or Native. If this is what stops us from making progress, then it is time we exmine this issue and see if it how we should look at it, or is there another way that could be effective in bring about healing. Here's a blog that I wrote a few years ago related to this issue: http://eaglemanz.blogspot.com/2012/04/defining-our-confiscated-identities.html

Tomorrow, it is expected to rain and I have difficulties in broadcasting during thunderstorms. If I have to postpone the show, we may follow up during the week. Thanks for everyones support and I appreciate all who listens in. Just keep sharing with other Chahta's! Yakoke!
