like waters on rivers, days will flow, to weeks to months And years.. they make us float on Lakes, Oceans And Seas ready to Sail to Another Destination..

what we do not know actually is that, we are floating on some destination, but this destination is what we use to reach our own Destination..

Do not try hard to Understand this, you are like water on some river, And you face rocks, Meanders And Falls that you do not even expect.. you meet people, some love you some hate you And you hurt those even you do not intend to But you flow you do not stop because if you do, you will form a Lake of Shame, Humiliation Aggressiveness And you might drown in your own mess

In their mind: Indian Country has had it too good for too long.  Imagine that.  Native journalist Mark Trahant is keeping track of t-rump HERE

US Presidents in Their Own Words Concerning American Indians

However, given the history of American Indians in the United States understandably American Indians view history differently. This is true of even how the men who have been president of the United States are viewed by Native people.
