<![CDATA[I was very happy to read all four responses by the young people to the "Question of the Week" in the March 3 Class Act section of the Tribune, "Who is your role model and why?" They are to be admired for their stands and also good parental training. -- Verna Hansen, Great Falls The Tribune's editorial on the Redskins can be easily summarized as follows: "Who cares about Natives who like the 'nasty' Redskins name and want to keep it? We know better than them." But merely insisting that something is true does not make it so. If the word Redskin is such an odious slur, why has the vice president of the Navajo Code Talkers Association expressed support for the name? Why do several Native American high schools call themselves Redskins? Why did Blackie Wetzel, the former president of the National Conference of American Indians, support the Redskins? Judging from the editorial, the Tribune is not even interested in the question. The best linguistic research has proven that the word "Redskin" originated as the equivalent of today's Native American. It was a word that Natives coined to describe themselves. For most of its history, it was used as a synonym for Indian. Contrast this history with the origins of ethnic and racial slurs, and the simplistic black skins analogy starts to fall apart. It is unfailingly true that racial slurs are imposed on a group from outside. No group has ever imposed a "nasty" name on themselves. The fight over the "Fighting Sioux" was mentioned but not that the Spirit Lake Sioux tribe at one time voted to keep the name but was later overruled by North Dakota voters who presumably knew better than they. Why doesn't the opinion of the many Natives who support keeping the Redskins name count? -- Peggy Rapier, Plano, Texas March 31 is just around the corner, and Planned Parenthood staff and volunteers are working double time to ensure our patients and the communities we serve have information about new, more affordable health insurance plans available to them thanks to the Affordable Care Act. March 31 is an important deadline because it marks the end of open enrollment in the marketplace. As the leading women's health care provider and advocate in Montana, Planned Parenthood of Montana is uniquely positioned to communicate with eligible and uninsured women across the state who rely on us for trusted information and health care. In the weeks leading up to the March 31 enrollment deadline, Planned Parenthood will be hosting many enrollment events. Keep your eye on the papers and social media! -- Jules Shindel, Great Falls
