LOL- yes, I wish we could as well- some really earn extra recognition!
Yes- it does. And there has been some very enlightening, open, and compassionate discourse on this thread. I appreciate a good, well presented debate.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

I am actually thinking some homemade strawberry wine...and a bubble bath girls...I had a horrible day with a cranky butt mare who is giving me a real run for my money. I will recite these words while soaking in the suds..."you can bend me, you can shake me, but oh baby you will never break me" ;)

You strike as a tough one- not easily broken.. :)
Have a nice bath and some homemade strawberry wine and relax..
Maybe the mare needs a bubble bath..

I think that is why I was offended by the posts referring to NA's earlier...I don't like when they are portrayed like that if you have any idea of the fundamentals of their spirituality and their respect for Great Spirit or Wankan Tanka and all the creation they feel are a gift...you wouldn't say those things...
Anyone who took the time to research these varied artists, just might find the real reverence they had for the native peoples. Their desire was to realistically portray their clothing, homes, ceremonies and way of life. They saw the coming clashes with western culture and sought to preserve the rich cultures. And no, their paintings covered many different western tribes, not just one or two.

I have strong Choctaw blood (one of the seven "civilized tribes"....google it) in my family tree. I do not, however, subscribe to much of the western world's concept of the mystical spiritual stereotypes of NA cultures. They were nations filled with the good and bad, as every culture is.

I would never ever think of sending a horse of mine to slaughter. Here in sweden we have cremation as an option, witch is my choice. Otherwise Ive got my back hoe loader to to bury the horse. BUT NEVER EVER SLAUGHTER !!!!!
