I think this is a good thing. It shows just how diverse our nation is becoming even in politics. Great article Jake.

I think it is great that Native Americans can break the stereotypes of being poor and poorly educated. This shows that they aren't dragging society down, but actually helping it.

I understand why people might take some of these names as an insult, but I think they are over reacting. Today none of the players on these teams want to offend native Americans. Many Native Americans don't take this as an insult, but actually as a source of pride. There are always those few people that are offended by anything.

Eight environmentally embattled spots in Indian country -- 6. Northern Wisconsin Tribes Take on Gogebic Taconite LLC -- "The problems keep coming for Gogebic Taconite’s proposed open pit iron ore mine in Wisconsin’s Gogebic Iron Range. Against it are the Lac Courte Oreilles and Bad River tribes. ICTMN brought to light a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ July 2013 letter to GTAC warning of the potential presence of a deadly form of asbestos, and GTAC’s dismissal of the agency’s concern in a written reply. ICTMN also reported that Wisconsin legislators ignored crucial scientific evidence when they passed legislation underwritten by GTAC last March that facilitated the project." - #IdleNoMore #NoPenokeeMine #BadRiver #HonorTheTreaties #HonorTheEarth #Ojibwe

I want to go there and see if I can find any ax heads of arrow heads.

I didn't realize there were still this many clashes between the government and Native Americans. I also think big mining companies should go somewhere else. We practically stole a continent from them and the only good place to mine is under their reservation? I doubt that.

Yet another display of dedication. They were willing to make the same trip as their ancestors.

I think that is cool how they had a memorial for 9/11 but not when those kids uprooted them and said they did it for that tribe. I am pretty sure Native Americans wouldn't do that.

I don't know how anyone could do this. The US hasn't been in a conflict with Native Americans since the 1800s. We all live in the same country now. We aren't enemies.

Observation ... Where is Wisconsin?? - "The second Monday of October annually marks Columbus Day in many parts the United States but not all states or region follow this observance. Instead, they celebrate other events on the day."

Tanner Reinier's comment, October 2, 2013 11:27 AM
I really like how they are so committed that they wont let the weather stop them. NATIVE AMERICAN ALL THE WAY.
Jake Baier's comment, October 4, 2013 12:06 AM
I think it is great that this day exists. The Native Americans deserve respect after we nearly wiped them of the face of the Earth to fulfill the American dream in the 1700s and 1800s. This is another great step in the transition from them being savages, to them being patriotic.

It's really cool that they are dedicated enough to celebrate their heritage, despite unfavorable weather conditions. It just shows how dedicated they are to their culture and how proud they are of their heritage.
