Wannabe indian, he should'nt be doing that, people like him have good reason to be native, but they are too stupid to understand what's like being native.

He should'nt go to sweat lodges or any other ceramony.

I hope he rots in prison. He's just another native that wants people to believe he's god. in reality he's a fraud that makes real native americans look bad.

Plenty of these types on the internet. One site in particular I happened upon called Spiritualforums Having an interest in the spiritualities and legends of other cultures, I joined. There is a Native American section there and after reading through some of the threads I didnít know whether to laugh or snarl at some of the totally misconceived new age malarkey regarding American Indian spiritualities and cultures. Attempting to state true facts I was for the most part snubbed or coyly put down by moderators and their bootlickers as if I were a bad person. Reading more into their BS regarding what they call Native American spirituality I was amazed and disgusted how these people attempt to see us all as having one Native American religion that is compatible enough to be mixed into their new age beliefs. They see only dream catchers, sweat lodges and other stereotypical aspects instead of us as many tribes all culturally and spirituality different from one another. I sense an agenda there that benefits other plastic shamans who make a mint prostituting someone elseís ancient traditions. People such as Keisah Crowther and Lynn Anderson who are now very wealthy and have the assets to protect their ill gotten wealth from any real Indian who would defend their traditions. If an Indian speaks up, he or she is treated like an enemy or a non-person. These people even hastily create sock puppet accounts to deal with a real Indian in such a manner.
