I remember hearing stories from my mother and father about their parents and grandparents when they were taken off the reservation, taken to the boarding schools, and pretty much taught to be ashamed of who they were as Native Americans. You can feel that impact today.
I think people should look at learning about Native American history the same as visiting Washington, D.C., and seeing the monuments there. It's all part of the package.
It's not a bad day at work when you just have to take your shirt off for a big franchise movie. There are worse jobs out there!
What I like about New York City is nobody cares. If they do, they don't ever approach. They just give you a 'What's up?' and that's it.
Where I come from, there were traditions with my race and whenever you faced a curve in life, there was always a tradition.
