Masha Allah Seeyah, maybe I'll borrow from the library. I'd rather see it, but you know!
I agree, should be required high school reading. It really opened my eyes about the shameful way the first people to live on this land we call the USA were treated. There were lots of broken promises made.
This is not where the spread of humankind is buried, but where a dream encapsulates the nightmare of mans cruelty and insensitivity, but has there been any lessonslearnt ? No, now the imperial machine plunders on insanely but now with a dainty kerchief dabbing at the guilt ridden snot of a drugged out generation appealing to political acumen in a ever tightening, speeding and diminishing world.
I think it was a very good book, it gave the reader a very good idea what the whites had done to the Native Americans other then "beat the savagry out of them" and showed that the whites were just or much more savage then the people they were trying to make civilized; I am very glad that Mr. Brown wrote the book.
The reason why I read this is because I went on a mission trip to the Rosebud Reservation and the Pastor said we should read the book to get an idea of what the Native Americans went through.
Being part Native American myself (Oglala Lakota/ Ho-chunk) I had some what of an understanding but after reading the book it made me realize that they were worse off then what I thought they went through
Indian History and Lore is one of my favorite subjects of American History. The Indians were as much victim's of predjudice as well as the black man and also the Irishmen who first came to this country.
