161. Good article, i love it....
Edited on Wed Nov-09-05 03:25 PM by petersond
I am currently working on cherokee/creek/choctaw treaties that were signed, that pushed the tribes further towards oklahoma, and believe me, reading it is a headache, all the law lingo and what not. I'm working on it for my wifey, she only has so much time at work, to do things. By the way, this 18th of Nov. At walmarts home offices my wife got George Wycliffe (chief of keetowah band cherokee) and Grey Davis (chief of the Osage Nation) to come to walmart to speak, during a brown bag special. She also got Kevin Costner to speak also (she did this, because most "whites" equate their indian knowledge with dances with wolves). Its really a damn miracle she got this to go through, but she is very persistant.

By the way, did any of you know that their were indian tribes effected by hurricane katrina? Fema or any orginazation for that matter tried to help any of them out, like the Houma nation for example. They didn't get any food, water, or anything for roughly, three weeks, and do you know what organization out reached their hand? Walmart, yes, walmart, the hate child of DU helped them out, and through strenous efforts from my wife, Diversity Relations Department and the american indian resource group, she got it accomplished, but you cannot imagine the god damn red tape she had to cut through, but she did it. See, people indians/whites can get along...mostly!... :)

I am sorry for not reading this one sooner, i have been busy further up in the thread, nice article... :)
