    The history and images weave a rich tale. Like so many diary's by Ojibwa, I am saddened to read the history of the Tribe's interaction with colonial imperialism.

      it is and was, US Blues. . .and a long-standing policy that finally caved in to fairness and getting the right people behind the ball that moved forward for a change. Sometimes I wonder how Native Americans can even stand the rest of us given such a tract. Then again, that was Zen and this is Tao and it is good our minds and hearts have healed and a wiser and fairer or more just course has been taken. As for Ojibwa's diaries. . .those are among my favorites submitted on our community's site. I am also a decent part Cherokee and somehow I think cellular memory kicks in and allows me to get in touch with an historical past and shame that needs retelling, solely for the fact I hope we never return to such fascism and insensitive policies. Hope not.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
