I've been in the Holbrook and Winslow area for about two years now and all the while feeling confused so with little hope of getting a intelligent response from most of the users on this site, I'm going to ask this question.......

Why are there so many "proud to be native" individuals dressed liked they are cowboys, Mexican or black?! Why does it seem that there are more gays in the Navajo nation than that of the Hopi's or Apaches?! And last but not least, is there something wrong with the water on the reservation that is cause or the main contributing factor to their level of ignorance?!
Please help me to try and understand this!!....oh and is there anywhere that we can send them for help?!!

People get into a south western kind of thing.
As to gay indians,i wouldnt know.My experience is with many being very poor and drinking to much.But thats from experience with a few folks.
You would be surprised at how much the federal gov. tells the indians what they can and cant do.
Now the whole USA is getting the treatment,welcome to the rez!

Have to know,you questions are legite. I,and many others,have the same questions. Homosexuality seems to be high among navajo's,even their teens. They seem damn proud of it! I have met many decent navajo adults but many of their young have quite the chip on their shoulders. Many seem to drift between the rez and adjacent towns-I suspect that gov. subsidies have a lot to do with it.
The chip I have with many of them is with the one's who have decent,if not very good,levels of income and still receive significant ammounts of money,directly or indirectly,from the gov.. This is not right and should be stopped.

You all bring up many great points (except for "breeze"). I've also noticed in the fifteen years I've been in Holbrook that the natives also seem to be very racist and without reason. After all if the white people and Latinos are so bad, but mainly the white ones, then why do they rely on them so much instead of just staying on the Rez? Don't get me wrong, white people can be a real pain when it comes to some things but I'm certainly not going to bite the hand that feeds me! All I'm saying is that they are very ungrateful, very racist, very confused and oh yeah, there are a lot of gays but I've noticed more so that they are very dikeish and flaming! And white people, if dont like how they are then stop giving them money!!! The crap your ancestors did was a hundred years ago. You've paid off the guilt now make them work!!
