Take all the junior meth freaks and put them in an alcoholic home. Then re-name Eureka to Eurtweeka.

I'm sorry...Can you please clarify what you meant here? In other words, who the "screwed up people" were that were in attendance at the conference? Do you even know who attended besides the folks mentioned in the article and, if so, who in particular is "screwed?" Also, who the "screwed up young people" are that are....umm. being screwed? The youth that were at the conference itself were actually taking leadership roles and making their complaints known to all that attended. They were articulate, showed great amounts of intelligence, and were pretty gutsy getting up in front of all those gatekeepers to be sure. Thanks much.

Ummmm....O.k. How is this any kind of solution to your perceived problem "Hank?"

I am not following your comment here at all.

I completely understand that you only have a limited amount of space in order to cover this story Alison White. What I don't understand is why not even a single word was set aside within the space of your article to mention the Native American representation, Indigenous specific issues/history, and coverage of Tribal communities that took place throughout this conference. It is my hope that next time the Times-Standard sends you out to truly cover an event, that you do not neglect our local Tribes if and/or when they are such an integral part of the proceedings within such an event. Thanks.
