What does ‘civilization’ really mean for Native America?
There are people who think I am the most native person around. Reality is I’m not as native as our ancestors were. In fact, my native ancestry was nearly removed from my consciousness by the Euro-American’s blasphemous need to make me into their image. Christianity and this new government collaborated to “civilize” me and called it “education.”
