When I was a little boy, a great deal of television dealt with cowboys, and a great deal of that portrayed Indians as vicious killers. One movie had the lead character talking about the Oglala Sioux: “They’re the throat cutters.” But some of the most heroic and brilliant generals in our country’s history were Native Americans: Crazy Horse, for example. Sitting Bull. Red Cloud, to name only a few. As a child, I was too young to have a sense of justice, I suppose, but I knew that it was wrong for the White Man to take the lands which were not theirs. It was wrong to slaughter the buffalo, as well, though the species seems to be making progress to repopulate now. Maybe I will succeed and give the land back to the Indians.
