Another note. I have also been attending the Native American Film Festival. It is very interesting learning about their culture, and seeing a knew point of view about america. Last night the movie was about John Trudell. He is a Native American Activist that has been through so much. He burned the american flag on the steps of the capitol, had his wife and children die in a fire as well as been in movies. He is a very inspiring person. one part of the movie was an interviewer asking him what COLUMBIS DAY meant to him. Are you serious? He is Native America. Did she forget that Columbus came and murdered them and took away any right to life that they once owned? that kind of made me upset. He repsonded by saying ” It would be like having an OSAMA BIN LADEN day for americans.” I thought that was the approrpiate answer. So , just updating on my events.
