Well said Tony and today we talk about "our" nation and would keep out the "illegals". What righteous trash spills from our mouths!!!

Every feeling American should recognize a bit of all our heart where buried at Wounded Knee. Great write! Thanks.

Awesome for you to share your background with us. You might make a good historian... a musical historian. I can get down with that :)

Hey Tony, worthy reminder of the way the world, especially in North America worked out. I always feel a kind of sadness in the loss of lifestyle and culture, and yet the world as a whole marches on to the beat of the melting pot, which I truly believe is a positive thing. Kudos!

The title of this poem is so apt. I think it is the dark side of this nation the way the Europeans and their American-born offspring treated the Native peoples. I am familiar with the Trail of Tears borne by the Cherokee and it is a particularly sad chapter in our history. I hope the gifts and perspectives of the Native cultures do not melt into the $ fabric of the dominant culture. Thanks for the wake up call.
