The US Army actually asked for permission to use the name "Lakota" for a new helicopter coming out.
The tribe agreed with it.
You see friend, we have ALOT of natives in the military. Per capita we've got more people in the military than any other ethnic group in the States. Its the same for Canada, so despite us being treated so badly we take up arms when needed without fretting about it.
You see friend, Natives care more about what is happening to our people now. What happened 100 to 200 years ago doesn't matter to us anymore. The only people you see crying over old stuff are those hippies and La Raza types.
They surely don't speak for us, on a whole American Indians love our country.
we'll never forget what happened to our ancestors, but we don't let it cloud our judgments
