July 20 2011 Native American Newsletter


Here’s the latest article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com. This summer has already been a hot one, and this topic may stir up a little more heat. But it is one to be discussed openly, honestly, and objectively.

Reservation Mindset – Is it Changing?
With so many stereotypes, so much poverty on the reservations, it has been easy to “pigeon hole” us as a People. Prejudicial adjectives such as “lazy” and “drunken” are finding replacements with “industrious” and “innovative.” But are things on reservations really changing?

Earlier this year I watched John Stossel’s special “Freeloaders” on Fox News. His comments have been gnawing at me ever since. The show skimmed over much and completely ignored even more. However it did raise a point I’ve been pondering for some time. How can American Indians reclaim the self sufficiency and self determination of our Ancestors?

I’m looking forward to a good discussion in the forum. Your thoughts and opinions are not only welcomed, but valued, so please join us.

It’s most unhelpful to merely present a problem or issue without suggestions and possible solutions. Economic development is occurring on the reservations. Those creative and innovative examples will follow.
Please forward this to friends and family. With thoughful ideas and suggestions, each of us can be part of a positive change. Until next time,

Walk in Balance and Beauty
