You gotta look mean or people won't respect you. White people will run all over you if you don't look mean. You gotta look like a warrior! You gotta look like you just came back from killing a buffalo!
But our tribe never hunted buffalo - we were fishermen.
What! You want to look like you just came back from catching a fish? This ain't "Dances With Salmon" you know!
You guys got your passports?
Yeah, you're leavin' the rez and goin' into a whole different country, cousin.
But... but, it's the United States.
Damn right it is! That's as foreign as it gets. Hope you two have your vaccinations.
Good morning, this is Randy Peone on KREZ radio, the voice of the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation. And it's time for the morning traffic report on this rainy Bicentennial Fourth of July. Let's go out to Lester Fallsapart in the KREZ traffic van broken down at the crossroads.
Big truck just went by... now it's gone.
Well, there you go folks. Looks like another busy morning.
Your father saved my life
Thomas you don't even know my father. Did you know that my father was the one that set your parent's house on fire? Did you know that my father beat my mother? Did you know that my father beat me too?
All I know is that when your father left your mother lost you too.
Thomas I wish that fire had killed you.
Victor LOOK OUT!
This man apparantly wants to press charges against you. He said and I "you assaulted him and pushed him to the ground".
Mr Joseph there's no need for that type of language. Mr Johnson's daughter Holly says he's, and I quote, "a drunken asshole". So you two are free to go.
How do we forgive our Fathers?
Maybe in a dream
Do we forgive our Fathers for leaving us too often or forever
when we were little?
Maybe for scaring us with unexpected rage
or making us nervous
because there never seemed to be any rage there at all.
Do we forgive our Fathers for marrying or not marrying our Mothers?
For Divorcing or not divorcing our Mothers?
And shall we forgive them for their excesses of warmth or coldness?
Shall we forgive them for pushing or leaning
for shutting doors
for speaking through walls
or never speaking
or never being silent?
Do we forgive our Fathers in our age or in theirs
or their deaths
saying it to them or not saying it?
If we forgive our Fathers what is left?
